Latest results: Schrier wins, legislative Dems make gains

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

(Nov. 8, 2018) — Following Wednesday’s additional ballot counting, Issaquah pediatrician Dr. Kim Schrier (D), the candidate endorsed by the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO in the 8th Congressional District, has officially won election to fill the seat being vacated by Rep. Dave Reichert (R). Schrier’s opponent, Republican Dino Rossi, officially conceded the race on Wednesday night.

“Congress is broken, and people in the 8th District are ready for a community pediatrician to bring a dose of common sense to DC,” Schrier said in a statement released after she widened her lead in the latest ballot count. “We deserve a representative who will take on drug companies and insurers to lower healthcare costs, who will protect pre-existing conditions, who will finally give the middle class a pay raise, and who will get corporate money out of politics. That’s exactly the representative I will be in Congress.”

Schrier joins a national wave of more than 30 Democratic women newly elected to Congress in the 2018 election, which will flip control of the House of Representatives and provide new checks and balances on President Donald Trump on the Republican-controlled Senate.

In Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, WSLC-endorsed Carolyn Long (D) conceded her race to Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R) on Wednesday night. That means Washington’s U.S. House delegation will consist of seven Democrats and three Republicans in the next term of Congress that begins in January 2019.

In races for the Washington State Legislature, several WSLC-endorsed Democratic challengers solidified their election night leads over Republican incumbents with the latest ballot counts. And in two closely watched Senate races, challengers Pinky Vargas (D-42nd) and Mona Das (D-47th) have significantly closed the gap on their incumbent opponents and could take leads in the coming days.

Following are selected 2018 election results as of 8 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 8. The next major update will be after 4 p.m. on Thursday. Check Vote.WA.gov for the latest results.
