In Seattle's mayoral election, underdog Mike McGinn is looking more and more like he will end up on top. From the Seattle Times:
Mike McGinn took a decisive lead in the Seattle mayor's race Friday night, leading by 2,384 votes.
Joe Mallahan would now have to get about 54 percent of the remaining votes to catch up to McGinn.
From that same article, here's a good reminder of what McGinn faced:
Mallahan had support from state leaders, including Gov. Chris Gregoire and leading state legislators, the chairman of the Washington State Democrats, Seattle's business community, most major unions, and police and firefighters.
As a result, if McGinn wins it will be interesting to watch him interact with the governor, the unions, the business community, the firefighters, etc.
