Washington Governor’s Race Still to Close to Call

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — New ballots are having little impact on Washington’s race for governor.

Election officials around the state tallied thousands of more votes Thursday, but Democrat Jay Inslee still held about 51 percent of the vote compared to 49 percent for Republican Rob McKenna. Officials still have hundreds of thousands of votes to count.

McKenna campaign manager Randy Pepple says they believe votes will break toward them on Friday, over the weekend and early next week. Roughly three-quarters of the ballots officials expect to receive have been counted so far.

McKenna is also focusing efforts on trying to rehabilitee about 16,000 ballots around the state that may go uncounted due to mismatched signatures or other issues.

Inslee spokesman Sterling Clifford says they have “tremendous confidence” that the final results would favor Inslee.
