No concession from McKenna, but possible ballot challengesNovember 8, 2012 @ 9:27 pm (Updated: 10:06 pm - 11/8/12 )
Days after the election, about 2.4 million ballots have been counted with an estimated 606,000 still to process.
McKenna's campaign spokesman says some ballots around the state will be challenged. Charles McCray estimates about 16,000 ballots will need another look, many of them with signatures that appear to be questionable.
The McKenna campaign has attorneys in every county checking on potential ballot issues.
While most political analysts say it's unlikely McKenna will catch up to Inslee, he's not conceding the election. He believes it's possible the remaining ballots will break in his favor.
Inslee remains confident he has won the election and he's preparing a team to take over the Governor's mansion in January.
So far, this race isn't as close as the 2004 contest when only 133 votes separated Chris Gregoire and Dino Rossi. Two recounts and a court challenge later, Gregoire became Washington's 22nd governor.
Sunday night, Gregoire and former Congressman Norm Dicks will be roasted by the Washington News Council as they both retire from office.
By LINDA THOMAS, I'll have a report on the roast of Gregoire and Dicks Monday morning
