President Obama has signaled for the first time his administration will not try to override recently approved laws in Washington and Colorado approving the recreational use of marijuana. Both laws have recently taken effect following their approval in ballot measures on Election Day. In a yet-to-air interview with ABC News, Obama says: “We’ve got bigger fish to fry … It would not make sense for us to see a top priority as going after recreational users in states that have determined that it’s legal.” Obama’s comments mark his first on the issue following widespread speculation the White House would try to challenge the Colorado and Washington laws.
Republican Rob McKenna concedes defeat to Democrat Jay Inslee in Washington governor’s race
Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna closed the margin with Democrat Jay Inslee a bit on Friday as counties continued to report updated ballot totals. But with fewer ballots left to be counted statewide, the likelihood of McKenna gaining the 42,000 or so votes needed to overtake his Democratic opponent continues to wane.
McKenna’s campaign points to polls showing that late-deciding voters sided more heavily with him. After the election night vote tallies were announced, McKenna trailed Inslee by 50,209 votes. Late Wednesday, Inslee’s lead grew to 53,860 votes, and to 54,322 by late Thursday.
As of late Friday afternoon, that lead was down to around 42,000 votes, showing that there were indeed a great many of McKenna votes left to be counted.
But the Inslee campaign says its own analysis of the remaining pool of ballots to be counted gives Inslee a 95 percent chance of winning. And the gains McKenna made on Friday could be erased when King County reports its own count later in the evening.
