Washington State - Every State Office Goes Democrat
From Governor to Insurance Commisioner - eight offices - a clean sweep for Democrats. Same Sex Marriage passed. Legal Marijuana passed. Cantwell easily reelected to US Senate. US House, 7-4 Democrat, GOP lost one seat, I think.
From Free Republic of all places.
I love my state. Born and raised here. Yes!
Still a lot of votes to be counted. It's looking good though.
Life is good in Seattle.
As of 10:30 PST the Secretary of State's office reported that Kim Wyman, a Republican and the well-respected auditor from Tacoma, Pierce County, is ahead with 50.41% of the vote. She is a candidate to replace the outgoing Secretary of State.
Washington has only 10 congressional districts, which have split 6-4 in favor of the Democrats.
This might be the most liberal state in the union...what's the cost of living? Is it easy to get a teaching job there?
Sounds like a cool place to live...

Harder than you would expect.
New Hampshire has all female representation (two women senators, two women house members, and a woman governor ... all democrats)
Technically the most liberal state in the US is considered Vermont.
But amazing job by Washington tonight. Legalizing same-sex marriage, marijuana, and a great dem sweep. Great sight to behold.
There's actually a list of the most Liberal and Conservative states.
Washington is 4th, after DC, Massachusetts, and Oregon.
