Patty Murray's Seattle stronghold: Senate race by geography
Posted by Jim Brunner
Post updated at 10:35 a.m. with more detail on the Seattle margins.
U.S. Sen. Patty Murray relied on strong support in Seattle and other cities to beat Republican challenger Dino Rossi.
As you can see from the newly available precinct breakdown of returns in King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties (courtesy of Seattle Times computer whiz Justin Mayo), Murray dominated the more urban areas - especially Seattle.
Murray won a whopping 82 percent of the Seattle vote, to Rossi's 18 percent. Of Seattle's 960 voting precincts, Rossi carried just one - Broadmoor, we're looking at you.
It wasn't only Seattle. Murray also beat Rossi handily in Eastside suburbs including Bellevue and Mercer Island. And she was strong in Tacoma and Everett.
huge gargantuan pro-Murray vote arguably outweighed every other factor.
Murray outpolled Rossi by 170,036 votes in the city. Her final statewide margin was just 118,766 votes.
Rossi, meanwhile, carried his home turf of Sammamish and the eastern parts of King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties. For statewide results, check out the Secretary of State's web site.
