But we have to go to the senate race in Washington State right now Fox News correspondent William La Jeunesse is in Seattle with the latest and William people might think at this hour it's a done deal not so much tell us.
The -- JB you know -- field reporters have a -- right were first to show last ago was you can see.
Everyone else thinks this thing is orbit as you just mentioned.
The Washington senate race is too close to call no winners have been declared you're out of one point four million votes cast.
Just 141000 separate incumbent Patty Murray as well as Republican -- challenger Dino Rossi.
That percentage there 5149.
And they're still about 500000.
Votes left to be counted.
In the next 24 hours and then remember this is a mail in ballot only state.
That means people could vote up until 8 o'clock tonight or anyone case they could vote at the airport until midnight.
So ballots will continue coming in over the rest of the week and possibly into next week.
So what's gonna happen is tomorrow at about 430.
And about another another counties -- release their figures a little later than that around 7 PM local time we're gonna get an update so even though other counties are rather other states around the country.
Continue to count their ballots overnight.
They don't do that here in here in -- -- -- I think it would tell him he's William -- -- should not only the -- believe they are now shutting the lights out but before today.
But for a back -- and you're you must've made friends there it's interesting because.
Obama has some of this highest approval numbers Baird did people turn out the vote even though -- -- -- and can they tell yet about actual turnout based on other election.
Yeah in you know what that's Dino Rossi is not hitting what's what.
It's pessimistic for Dino Rossi here.
Is that he's not hitting the -- that he hit in 2004.
When he base hit a dead heat for a statewide race for governor.
He -- of losing that race by a 129 votes -- -- initially won it by more than 260 that a hand recount but the point I'm making is.
As analysts look at this race.
It was going to be decided here in Seattle both in King County Seattle as well as a two bedroom communities pierce county in snohomish county.
And he is not running where Republican experts still does he needed to be.
Basically 40% here.
And about 51 to 53% those other counties and he hasn't hit that.
He is running better than expected to Spokane and they have a lot of votes left to count the point I'm making.
Both candidates appeared tonight no concession speech no victory speech both are optimistic for different reasons.
I will tell you that there were some initiatives on the ballot that may have helped drive conservative voters we'll have to see tomorrow but again that's about 9:10 o'clock eastern time.
That -- -- yes we have another saying that street reporter -- me and Greg.
That we don't leave until the job is done and we're not done that yet so stick around even if the lights go out thank you so much it is a very interesting race -- if given a twenty dollar bill -- they'll keep the lights on.
