Murray keeps big lead as more votes tallied for Seattle mayor

More vote totals released by King County Elections this afternoon confirmed challenger Ed Murray’s easy win over Mayor Mike McGinn in the Seattle mayoral race.

With more than 108,000 ballots counted, Murray led by nearly 13,000 votes with 55.6 percent support, compared with 43.7 percent for McGinn.

Murray already was meeting with advisers and beginning to sketch out a transition plan today, after receiving congratulatory calls from senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, Gov. Jay Inslee and U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, among others.

McGinn acknowledged on election night his single term as mayor was over, but as of this afternoon he had not formally conceded the race.

His campaign spokesman, Aaron Pickus, said McGinn will hold a news conference Thursday morning.
