Baumgartner: a ‘Rocky’ finish?
Longshot Republican U.S. Senate candidate Michael Baumgartner took the podium at the Republican election-night party in Bellevue shortly before the first results were posted. He didn’t concede his race to incumbent Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell, but he came close.
It’s an uphill fight, the state senator from Spokane told the crowd, “but hopefully Rocky’ll pull a 15th-round knockout tonight.”
He also asked for a round of applause for Cantwell. How often will that happen tonight?
