(CNN) - Washington Democratic Sen. Patty Murray will serve a fourth term in the Senate after challenger Dino Rossi conceded Thursday, two days after Election Day.
Murray held a 2 point lead with 82 percent of the vote counted Thursday night.
"This evening, I called Sen. Murray to offer my congratulations on her re-election to the U.S. Senate," Rossi said in a statement.
If at first you don't succeed (or the 2nd or 3rd time), try, try, try, try, and try again, Dino. Hope you get a real job some day.
Yes! One less seat for republicans to use to continue the destruction they started 2 years ago.So this makes Dino Rossi a 4 time looser now?
Yay, Senator Murray! Washington State loves you and we're glad to have you continue as our Senator!
no surprise here... wash has always been liberal in the high population... and whacko... as long as a state does not require the feds to bail them out – or get any pork – then i don't really care what they vote for within their borders.
Hah, Washington State re-elected their 'genius'.
Dino Rossi overwhelmingly defeated Patty Murray in 100% of the Voting Precincts East of the Cascade Mountain Range. Now that's downright impressive. Murray won the election based on population density in King County (the Seattle area), which is heavily infiltrated by liberals/progressives, and feminists. Don't understand why Senator Murray rents office space in Spokane, Washington (East of the Cascades) when all her policies and congressional voting record reflect the will of the people West of the Cascades. We are a silent and unheard majority in Eastern Washington.
Ms. Murray please be remined this a vote of voters that are not in your 50 percent camp and that you represent all in the public interest not your close to wallet.
Be reminded reminded
I am so sick of this "Democrat vs Republican" game. It doesn't matter who you are, or what you believe in, or what you believe is right or wrong in our nation.
Just if you're Democrat or Republican. Why can't we stop playing these games and base politics around what people TRULY want... This is what is wrong with America.
huge thanks go to my partisan hon rossi:that is excellent democracy.and bravo hon. Patty.long live this democracy!
But, Mich McConnell said the Republicans got a mandate. I guess he was wrong.
I'm glad that Patty beat that Repugnant. She's the real deal, Rossi is a turd, but so are all Repugnants.
Yay! Now will Dino finally realize that the state doesn't want him and slither back into his hole?
good mayb a senate controlled by dems can help keep the repubs in check but im not sure two days after a win the congress my gas has went by twenty cents a gallon i guess thats their plan to create jobs america
I have always been confident that Patty Murray would win. Dino Rossi is now a three-time loser to female Democrats. Elsewhere, the Republiicans ate their own kind. Many of the Democrats who lost in the House were Blue Dog Democrats who voted with Republicans. The election had the effect of purging the Democratic Party of Blue Dogs. That was most certainly the case in Mississippi.
Congratulations on the win. Please do your job and keep your promises.
I am so happy for her :))
Sorry Dino, but Washington is lost to communism. Your best hope is to get out before you're put in a labor camp. I used to live there, but got out while I could. Let the libs have it. With luck it and Ore-gone will slide into the ocean with The People's Democracy of Californica.
Yessssssssss that just goes to show that republicons have no chance in hell running for high office in blue blue washington
That sucks. I prefer my senators to be intellectually compromised and morally bankrupt.
rossi lost again ....not too happy with the democrats, but rossi would just be worse
Do you realize that if the republicans had won a couple more Senate seats, they would be talking impeachment right now?
God, this country really is a gigantic trailer park.
Good for Patty, she beat down another Repugnant. Patty's the real deal, Rossi's scum.
As a man with out country for the last twintysome years, i learn onething from the politician which is the samething with better sound.
Patty has pulled it off again. She has done extremely well representing our state and has earned this opportunity to serve its citizens. I have met Patty personally and she is a wonderful person and i wish her the absolute best and congradulate her on re election.
YAY!!!!!!!!!! As a resident of the Northwest, I have long appreciated everything Senator Murray has done and will continue to do for our region.
