SEATTLE (AP) – The Latest on Washington state elections (all times local):
Democrats hope to pick up a U.S. House seat in Washington state as more ballots are counted in the 8th District.
Dr. Kim Schrier, the Democratic candidate, leads Republican Dino Rossi in early returns in the district that stretches from Seattle’s far eastern suburbs across the Cascade Mountains. Schrier was doing well in populous King County.
Currently there are six Democrats and four Republicans in the state’s House delegation.
Another targeted Republican incumbent, Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, was leading her Democratic challenger, Carolyn Long, in southwestern Washington in the 3rd District.
More results will be posted statewide Wednesday afternoon.
