''Governor-elect Gregoire''

The P-I posted this at 1:25 pm, Wednesday: "Democrat Christine Gregoire, the three-term state attorney general who fought America's tobacco industry, Internet porn and schoolyard bullying, becomes Washington's governor-elect on Thursday, by a scant 129 votes out of more than 2.8 million cast."-from the story, "Closest governor's race: It's Governor-elect Gregoire, but no Rossi concession." The Columbian has this, from their story, "County panel rebuffs GOP bid," on Clark County's refusal to "shake loose" more Dino Rossi votes: "That makes it unanimous," said assistant elections director John Pearson of the secretary of state's office, which urged counties to turn down a request by the Republican Party to count hundreds of rejected ballots, including 24 in Clark County."
