The Seattle Times: Local News: Final Washington state recount results: Gregoire by 130

The Seattle Times: Local News: Final Washington state recount results: Gregoire by 130: "After a bruising election and two recounts, Democrat Christine Gregoire emerged as the winner by a 130-vote margin in Washington state's astonishingly close governor's race.
Republican Dino Rossi won the first count by 261 votes, then watched his lead shrink to 42 after a machine recount. His supporters say the protracted governor's race is not over yet.
Gregoire's lead in the statewide hand recount widened from 10 to 130 today after a Supreme Court decision allowed King County to include 732 mistakenly rejected ballots. King County, home of Seattle and a Democratic stronghold, was the last county to report final recount results today. "

Hope its over now.
