Washington’s race for governor still hasn’t been called. Hundreds of thousands of ballots remain uncounted. A disproportionate number of those votes are in heavily Democratic King County, with nearly a third of the state’s electorate.
That would seem to bode well for Democrat Jay Inslee. Inslee retains a narrow lead over Republican Rob McKenna.
The conventional wisdom and the statistical analysis would seem to suggest that while the race may tighten that Jay Inslee will be the next governor of Washington but nobody’s conceding and nobody’s declaring victory just yet.
