Purcell Wins

Posted on 26th August 2016 at 09:03

A machine recount confirms that Teresa Purcell has displaced incumbent JD Rosetti in the November General Election race for Position #1 in the 19th Legislative District. The final tally released by the Washington Secretary of State shows Purcell with 6,411 votes, while Rosetti received 6,361 votes, a final margin of 50 votes, out of more than 26,500 votes that were cast. Purcell will now face Republican Jim Walsh in the General Election. Walsh was the top vote-getter in the Primary, but it’s noted that Purcell and Rosetti split the Democratic vote, and this seat has been in Democrat hands for many years.
