Washington State Governor Election Upheld

The last major election from 2004 that was still, marginally, in play moved a step closer to resolution today.

WENATCHEE, WA (Seattle P-I) – Gov. Christine Gregoire’s narrow 2004 election victory was upheld this morning by a judge who said Republicans failed to show that voting problems in King County and elsewhere were the reason Gregoire won by 129 votes.

Bridges said there was evidence that 1,678 illegal votes were cast in the 2004 election, including 1,391 votes by felons. However Bridges said there was no evidence that Gregoire benefited from the illegal votes.Michelle Malkin live blogged the decision and has an extensive roundup of reactions.

Update: Rossi will not appeal the decision.
