Congressional hopeful Suzan DelBene, joined by Gov. Chris Gregoire and U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, dashed through a crowd of about 80 supporters at the Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland before ducking into an elevator shortly before 8 p.m.

Gregoire was said to be headed downtown for the Democrats’ statewide party at the Westin.

Larsen, D-Everett, is expected to easily beat Republican challenger Dan Matthews of Mukilteo for a seventh term in Congress. He said he’ll spend Tuesday night “celebrating what I think will be a Suzan DelBene victory.”

“I feel really good about my race. I feel really good about Suzan’s race,” Larsen said. “It looks like Democrats are may fall short of a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, but we’re standing pretty tall here in Washington state.”

DelBene’s supporters, treated to spring rolls and steak skewers, are becoming increasingly animated as results pour in from around the country.

The cheers were practically deafening as NBC projected Obama to win Ohio just now.
