The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

Update in the 43rd

With all 218 precincts having reported, Jamie Pedersen holds a thin 35-vote lead over Jim Street in the 43rd House district Democratic primary. The totals:

Jamie Pedersen 2,300 [23.27%]
Jim Street 2,265 [22.92%]
Bill Sherman 1,777 [17.98%]
Stephanie Pure 1,278 [12.93%]
Lynne Dodson 1,151 [11.65%]
Dick Kelley 1,106 [11.19%]
Write-ins 5 [0.05%]

Looks like we'll have to wait for the last-minute absentees to figure out who will be the next Democratic representative for the 43rd district. The candidates finished pretty close to what I emailed Postman yesterday, though I vastly overestimated Dick Kelley's performance. Guess that principled stand on campaign finance really did cost him in the end.
