THE PARTY BEGINS... One THRILLING evening was to be had in Bellevue for the King County Republican Party. It was truly a Republican Party Party. Councilman Rob McKenna declared victory in the race for Washington State Attorney General. Sheriff Dave Reichert spoke to the crowd, expecting a victorious outcome in his race for the Eighth Congressional District Seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. (I had the pleasure of meeting the man before the Seahawks game last Sunday.) Dino Rossi also addressed the audience, with the outcome of his VERY CLOSE race still to be determined.

Secretary of State Sam Reed and Commissioner of Public Lands Donald Sutherland appear to be cruising to their re-election victories, as is Justice Richard Sanders. And--I'm quite pleased to say--Jim Johnson is out in front in his race for the Washington State Supreme Court.

Many familiar faces were in the audience in Bellevue this night, including the sensational Stefan Sharkansky, blogging about the event from the internet café on Sound Politics.

The President is now reported to have as many as 269 electoral votes. That is all he needs to send the election to the U.S. House for the tie-breaker. This would indeed be an extraordinary occurrence, but I think it more likely he will carry the day in one of the state’s that has not yet been called. Plus, we still await the counting of many absentee and provisional ballots.

Finally, how about JOHN THUNE?! This is GREAT news! Hugh Hewitt has been pulling for this guy for the longest time—and he was right all along. After a razor-thin loss to Tim Johnson in 2002 under some shady circumstances, Thune comes through in a TRIUMPH in South Dakota. Welcome to the upper house in Washington, D.C., Senator-elect Thune!!!
