Verner: I'm Not Conceding

SPOKANE, Wash. - Mary Verner's campaign says she will not concede to David Condon despite trailing by nearly 2,700 votes. Wednesday, with 17,000 ballots left to count, Verner trailed Condon by 2100 votes. Now, with just about 4,300 votes to go, Condon's increased his lead by more than 500 votes.

There are still about 10,000 ballots left to count in the Spokane County races, but less than half of that for city races.

In the race for Spokane City Council President Ben Stuckart still has a commanding lead over longtime Spokane politician Dennis Hession.

SPOKANE, Wash. - Incumbent Mary Verner trails her opponent David Condon with nearly 17,000 ballots left to count in the race for Spokane Mayor. 

Verner told KHQ Local News on election night that no candidate would ask for the issues that have come up along her re-election campaign trail. She also said it didn't help that her opponent ran a relentlessly negative campaign from the start.

Last night the Spokane County elections office reported it still had 17,000 ballots left to count in the city races but it still has roughly that same amount of ballots that remain not counted because of the large number of voters that sent in their decisions at the last minute.

In the Spokane City Council President's race Ben Stuckart leads challenger and longtime Spokane Politician Dennis Hession by nearly 3,000 votes.

Mike Fagan leads Donna McKereghan by 800 votes in the district one city council race. District Two is much closer as it is only separated by 200 votes. Mike Allen leads Richard Rush, 7,979 to 7,773. Steve Salvatori has a 1400 vote advantage over Joy Jones in the race for the District 3
City Council seat. The totals currently sit at 8,595 to 7,147.

In Spokane County races there are still 38,000 ballots yet to be counted. To this point election officials have counted 112,000 votes.
