Washington GOP decides not to count all the votes. WTF?


As you know, here at TPM we’ve been really curious what happened up in the Republican caucus in Washington state. For probably the first time in all the primaries and elections I’ve ever watched, the folks running the election decided to stop counting the votes with 13% of the votes uncounted. And this wasn’t a 70-30 blow out, but a tight race where the two top vote getters were separated by less than 2% of the vote. Then this morning, state party chair Luke Esser decided to declare McCain the winner.
