Whitman votes blue again


August 9, 2018

It was only a paritial count in what amounts to a sample election, but Tuesday night's return for the primary election put Whitman county back on blue side for the big race. Democrat Lisa Brown had 215 more votes than Republican incumbent Cathy McMorris-Rodgers.

The Whitman return compares to Spokane county where McMorris-Rodgers was hanging on to a 500-vote margin in the early returns.

This county's Democratic edge in the hotly contested race for the 5th District follows the blue return two years ago when Whitman was the lone county east of the Cascade ridge to favor Hillary Clinton.
