Edmonds, Ferguson seperated by just a handful of votes

It seems there will be a recount in the Edmonds-Ferguson race.

Here's the latest result from King County elections:
Bob Ferguson 8093 votes - 49.97%
Carolyn Edmonds 8068 votes - 49.81%

They're seperated by only 25 votes.

The race is incredibly tight. What does this remind you of? Last year's gubernatorial election, of course. Edmonds has a good shot at winning. She's barely, barely trailing Ferguson and there are just a few ballots left to be counted.

King County Elections is saying today's numbers represent all the ballots they had on hand. Absentees will continue to come in for several days because Washington law allows ballots to be mailed as late as Election Day. If current trends continue, Edmonds may be able to topple Ferguson.
