Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire leads among men (49%-47%) and among women (54%-43%) in the exit poll, according to CNN. It would be a pretty big shock if she won by that margin, but obviously that's good news for the incumbent Democrat.
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.
