Election night: Dems gain in Washington, but how much?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

(Nov. 6, 2018—10 p.m.) — As of late Tuesday night, one labor-endorsed Democratic candidate for Congress is leading with Kim Schrier over Dino Rossi in the 8th CD, and another is within striking distance as Carolyn Long narrowly trails Jaime Herrera Beutler. If either (or both) wins and flips these Republican-held seats, Washington will officially join the national “blue wave” that has swept Democrats into control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

In races for Washington State Legislature, many are still too close to call. But if all of the candidates who are leading their races as of tonight were to maintain their leads and win, Democrats would gain seven seats in the State House and two seats in the State Senate. Those outcomes would significantly increase their majorities to 57-41 in the House and 27-21-1 in the Senate. That said, final results are likely to change in the coming days as more ballots are counted.

Following are selected 2018 election results from Washington state as of 10 p.m. on Election Night. The next major update will be after 4 p.m. on Wednesday. Check Vote.WA.gov for the latest results. Candidates endorsed by the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO are listed in bold. (* denotes incumbents)
