SEATTLE (AP) â€” Democrats gained more breathing room in the Senate with the victory of Washington Sen.Â Patty Murray, whose fourth term was secured after a three-day vote count.
Murray’s win overÂ Republican Dino Rossiwas confirmed Thursday as tallies pushed her lead to about 46,000 votes out of more than 1.8 million counted, or about 51% to 49%. About three-quarters of the expected ballots had been counted in unofficial returns.
Though many ballots still await processing, but an Associated Press analysis determined Murray’s lead would be insurmountable.
“Now we have to get to work,” Murray said Thursday night. “I want to make sureÂ Washington state has what it needs to get its economy back on its feet.” Rossi conceded defeat.
Murray said her priorities in a fourth term will include securing tax cuts for the middle class and helping theBoeing Co. win a lucrative Air Force refueling tanker contract.
