Koster feels good, says “we’ll trust the voters”

Watching the results come in on Tuesday night with supporters at an Everett restaurant, 1st District Congressional candidate John Koster said he felt good about his chances of winning.

“There were 13 self-funded candidates who ran in 2010 and three got elected,” he said. “We’ll trust the voters.”

Before arriving at the Everett restaurant, Shawn O’Donnell’s, he and his wife enjoyed a private dinner at another restaurant, a chance for some reflection. “It’s been a long haul,” he said.

Looking at his supporters, Koster said he was confident they were going to win.

“We ran a great grass-roots campaign,” he said. More than 100 volunteers were walking through precincts on Election Day, urging people to vote.

The restaurant held special meaning, Koster said: “This is where we started the campaign, and this is where we’re going to finish.”
