Over at the No On 1240 Facebook page, I had unofficially said I thought this was done.
To understand, nearly all the counties were trending the same as they had since Tuesday night and it did not seem possible to overtake that slight Yes lead.
Today, I realized that the Yes on R74 campaign had crunched the numbers (even as their lead had been as slim as the Yes on 1240 lead Tuesday night) and said they won.
So, I thought, if Yes on 1240 has all this money, why haven't they crunched the numbers and announced THEIR win? Or did they but they really can't be sure?
All I know is the latest numbers from the Washington Secretary of State yesterday were these:
As of 4:45 p.m.
The difference is about 43K votes.
There are three large counties to drop new numbers (and they hadn't since Tuesday night) at 5 p.m. - Spokane, Snohomish and Skagit.
Again, the trending is not there for a win but I do love that Bill Gates couldn't just take this right off his "to-do" checklist Tuesday night.
