The Return of the Returns…
…a tale of suspense in several parts.
Actually the suspense is, for the most part, beginning to subside. Not much has changed with the latest tally. At the top of the ticket, Patty Murray has pushed above the 51% mark, and no one's pointing to a path to success for once and future real estate speculator Dino Rossi. Actually, the suspense in that one's been over for pretty much everyone for a day or two.
On the other hand, also pushing higher into the lofty perches of the low 50s is Rep. Rick Larsen, who is rebounding in late returns after trailing election night. Rick's now ahead by 1458 votes, nearly tripling the scant advantage he held after yesterday's returns. Still a bit close for confidence, though, so the suspense goes on.
