SPOKANE, Wash. - Washington voters made some important decisions about the future on Tuesday night.
It was a big day for Washington and Idaho elections, but not a lot of turnover in the federal and state executive races.
Bill Bryant had the support of Spokane County, but Governor Jay Inslee will retain his seat by a margin of just under 250,000 votes.
Senator Patty Murray is back for a fifth term in Congress, making the WSU graduate one of the longest serving senators Washington has seen. She won her race against challenger Chris Vance with about 60 percent of the vote.
Incumbent Idaho Senator Mike Crapo won his race against Jerry Sturgill by nearly 32,000 votes. Crapo made national headlines recently for flip-flopping his position on now President-elect Donald Trump.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers is also back for another term. She beat Joe Pakootas with about 58 percent of the vote.
Congressman Raul Labrador, who has been in office since 2011, won his race for the 1st District of Idaho with about 68 percent of the vote.
