Environmentalist Mike McGinn is leading cell-phone executive Joe Mallahan in the Seattle mayor's race, but just barely.
With 38 percent of precincts reporting, McGinn has 50.5 percent to 49.4 percent for Mallahan.

GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
