AP: Democrat Bob Ferguson elected state’s next attorney general

The Associated Press has called Washington state’s closely-watched attorney general race for Bob Ferguson, the Democrat.

Ferguson, a Metropolitan King County Council member, was beating fellow Councilmember Reagan Dunn, a Republican, by 114,429 votes in updated vote totals released Wednesday evening.

Ferguson had 52.8 percent to Dunn’s 47.2 percent, according to the Secretary of State’s office. That’s nearly the lead Ferguson held on election night.

The attorney general represents the state in legal matters and provides a platform for policy making, often through lawsuits in conjunction with other states to protect consumers. The job is also considered a stepping stone to higher office.
