Republican Dino Rossi came out on top of the gubernatorial recount in Washington state
, beating Democrat Christine Gregoire by 42 votes. He had won the initial count by 261 votes
. King County (where Seattle is) gave Gregoire a 245-vote swing. It's expected that the Democrats will call for a partial hand recount
, which they would have to pay for (25 cents per vote), unless they end up winning the recount.
