Amazing night in Seattle politics

Huge progressive vote in Seattle tonight. Mayor's race is a toss up. Mike McGinn, with very little money but with an electrically-assisted bike, virtually tied with Joe Mallahan. Licata holds on. O'Brien beats Rosencrantz. Yes to a big levy for low-income housing. Looking farther, King County picks the self-described progressive who called his opponent a Republican. Gay rights gain in statewide election, one of the more significant votes in the nation. Tim Eyman hammered.

Whatever may have happened elsewhere, Washington State stayed blue.
