Washington's 8th Congressional Seat Still Undecided

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com The presidential election is over, but in Washington state the 8th Congressional District is still up for grabs with only 65% of the votes counted. The numbers so far show Republican Dave Reichert in the lead by about 2,800 votes. The re-election bid of Reichert, a former King County sheriff, is being bolstered by a sizable margin in Pierce County, where he was leading by roughly 5,000 votes as of Thursday's count. However, the bulk of the district's votes are in King County, where thousands of ballots are yet to be counted. Burner was leading in King County by 2,000 votes.
