With 2.87 million votes counted, about 6,000 left to count, and county certification due Wednesday, the Washington race for governor is separated by 19 votes: 1,367,346 (Gregoire) to 1,367,365 (Rossi).

Of the 6,000 left, they are just about evenly split between counties favoring each candidate.

It seems entirely likely there will be a recount, because recount is automatic if the difference is less than 2,000. So unless the remaining ballots swing significantly toward one or the other tomorrow, which seems impossible, we will have a recount.

Stay tuned.
