Zeiger leads Morrell by 47 votes, close enough to require a hand recount. Democratic incumbent Sen. Randy Gordon trails Republican challenger Steve Litzow by 194 votes in King County’s 41st District, and in Whatcom County’s 42nd District, Republican challenger Vincent Buys leads Democratic incumbent Rep. Kelli Linville by 154 votes.
