1.2M ballots remain to be counted in Washington

SEATTLE (AP) - Secretary of State Sam Reed says about 1.2 million ballots remain to be counted in Washington.

He says that's about half the expected total.

Reed told KING-TV more results due from counties Wednesday afternoon will likely show trends in the tight race for governor and other close races.

He says the outcome of the governor's race between Jay Inslee and Rob McKenna should be clear by Friday "unless it's a real nail-biter."
