Sound Politics Election Night Coverage - Stay Tuned!

We'll have election night coverage aplenty for you this evening at Sound Politics. Stefan will be in Bellevue at the Reichert/McGavick gathering. He'll be blogging on the contest in the 8th Congressional District between incumbent Republican Dave Reichert and Democrat challenger Darcy Burner; on conservative challenger Stephen Johnson's bid to unseat incumbent Susan Owens from the Washington Supreme Court; and on key state legislative races. Stefan will also be providing on-site news coverage from Bellevue of Republican Mike McGavick's challenge to incumbent U.S. Senator and Democrat Maria Cantwell.

Eric will be providing trenchant analysis of the McGavick/Cantwell contest. He'll also report on Republican incumbent Cathy McMorris's defense of her seat in the 5th Congressional District against Democrat challenger Peter Goldmark; and he'll track broader national developments in today's mid-term elections for the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate.

I'll be following referendums and ballot initiatives in Seattle, King County, statewide; and as time permits, across the nation.

There'll be a goodly number of posts up tonight, many of them updated as necessary. We hope you'll join us; and feel free, as always, to add insightful, civil comments.

Can we have a contest? Let's guess the time for Mike!'s concession speech. I say 9:30, give or take 15 minutes. What say you?

2. Oops, Matt! That should be Democratic challenger, not Democrat challenger. After all, it's the Democratic Party, not the Democrat Party.

3. No word on the website as to where his concession speech party will be held.

4. We won't hold our breath waiting for Maria to speak either. She never talks to the voters. But I am sure her campaign will issue a statement of some sort.

5. Well I'll be down at the Bellevue Victory/Defeat party too but I doubt I'll be blogging:-)

6. Oh, and as a public service announcement to TV, radio and print reporters.
Tim Eyman has e-mailed a press release stating that he too will be at the Bellevue GOP party. He'll have his cell on if you want to talk to him about Seattle's Prop 1, whether he'll dress up as a Klingon or Optimus Prime for his 2007 initiative campaign... Or if you're just sad and rone-ry and need someone to talk to...

7. I'm hoping to see PETA get some crow for Dipsy-Doodle-Darcy to eat!

8. It would be unbelievably stupid and pathetic if Burner wins. It's predominantly in King County where anything can happen - so those for Reichert - keep up the fight & vote at the polls !
