Three House seats and one Senate seat were still up in the air and near recount range after last night's ballot counting:
- Democrat Roger Goodman was trailing Kevin Haistings in Kirkland’s 45th district by just 78 votes.
- Democrat Luis Moscoso took a 20-vote lead over Republican Heidi Munson for the 1st district seat that was opened by the retirement of Democratic Rep. Mark Ericks of Bothell.
- Democratic Rep. Dawn Morrell of Puyallup led Republican Hans Zeiger by 100 votes in the 25th district.
- And Democratic Sen. Steve Hobbs of Lake Stevens took a 256-vote lead over Republican Dave Schmidt in the 44th district.
If those results hold up, House Democrats would emerge with a 56-42 majority and Senate Democrats would have a 27-22 majority. Before the election the House Democrats had a 61-37 edge and Senate Democrats were up 31-18.
We'll have more later.
