Trailing by 261 votes, Gregoire won't concede; recount coming

Unbelievable, that the election was so close, AND now we (the State of Washington) have a Republican governor, which I thought there was no chance of happening. Dino should ABSOLUTELY send a cut of his check to George W. every month.

The final tally, pending the recount:

Rossi (D) 1,371,414 48.876%
Gregoire (D) 1,371,153 48.867%

Interesting also that Rossi won 31 counties out of 39, but Gregoire KILLED him in King County (as expected), winning Washington's largest county by over 150,000 votes. She lost Pierce (where I live) and Snohomish Counties, which she was expected to win like her five Democratic predecessors (and John Kerry), but Rossi won both counties.

Gregoire was up by 18,000 votes on 11/4, but Rossi had overtaken her by 11/9. Rossi briefly lost the lead Monday, trailing by 158 votes, and as of Tuesday he was up by 19. NINETEEN!

Naturally, there has been some issues with the vote tallies, most notably Grays Harbor County (won by Gregoire) having a computer glitch give Rossi about 10,000 extra votes, but for the most part this has been pretty civil, expecially compared with Bush/Gore '00.

Well, Rossi is ahead for now. The east coast papers had Gregorie up by 19 as the final count before those other votes were counted.

Certainly can't blame Gregoire for not wanting to concede, given the nanotube thin margin and the fact that the lead has swapped so many times.

She did annoy me when I watched the debate though. Of course, I thought Rossi was a pretty good candidate for a sacrificial lamb and down ten points a week out...
