This is from a “reliable source”, but “unconfirmed” and “unofficial” and all the other tentative qualifiers you can think of, but — not counting the 723 — Democratic number crunchers believe that after King County’s results are added in, Christine Gregoire will lead the manual recount… by less than 10 votes.
Expect the mainstream media to start reporting this tonight.
I only scooped the AP by a few minutes. It’s in the P-I:
Democratic State Party Chairman Paul Berendt says recount results from King County give Democrat Christine Gregoire an eight-vote statewide victory over Republican Dino Rossi in the governor’s race.
King County Elections has confirmed that both parties received recount data today.
I wonder if Rossi still wants to stop counting votes now that he’s behind?
