Republican upbeat after loss, points to 2014

Republican challenger Robert Reedy says that he is happy with his vote total against incumbent 32nd District State Rep. Ruth Kagi in the Nov. 6 general election, despite Kagi’s 73 percent to 27 percent lead in votes counted through Thursday.

Both King and Snohomish counties will continue to count votes through county certification of results Nov. 27. The Secretary of State’s office plans final certification of statewide results during the first week in December.

Reedy noted Thursday that Kagi had outspent him by an 85-1 margin. Reedy, who also lost a bid for the Mountlake Terrace City Council last year, vowed to return, saying “See you in 2014.”

Reedy trailed Kagi 66 percent to 33 percent in his home Snohomish County part of the district. He trailed Kagi 78 percent to 22 percent in the King County portion of the district — Shoreline and the part of northwest Seattle where Kagi now lives.

The results will give Kagi an eighth two-year term.
