Washington's Supreme Court race remains too close to call after four days of ballot-counting.
Justice Richard Sanders has collected 50.3 percent of the vote in his bid for a fourth term, to 49.7 percent for his challenger, Bainbridge Island attorney Charlie Wiggins. Hundreds of thousands of ballots remain to be counted – many of them in King County, where Wiggins is winning.
Sanders came under fire late in the campaign for insisting at a court meeting that racial bias plays no significant role in the criminal justice system. He said he has nothing to apologize for and is proud of his record standing up for the state Constitution and protecting individual liberties.
