Washington loser wants rematch

Dino Rossi, the Republican candidate for Washington governor who "won" the November 2 election by a few votes and a recount by even fewer votes but then lost the third count, wants the state to vote again.

In a letter to his Democratic opponent, Christine Gregoire, Rossi wrote: "The uncertainty surrounding this election process isn't just bad for you and me it is bad for the entire state. People need to know for sure that the next governor actually won the election."

Gregoire's response: "N-O. No."

We're with Gregoire—not just because she's a Democrat and a woman, but because a revote would cost the state $4 million. Not to mention more time, energy, and patience, which are all in very short supply in Washington right now.
