Vancouver, WA — Unofficial election results for Washington statewide and local races are in, according to Clark County Elections and the Secretary of State’s Office.
Governor Jay Inslee won a record-tying third term, handily defeating Republican challenger, Loren Culp.
Culp, police chief of the small town of Republic, campaigned in part against Inslee’s coronavirus restrictions like mandatory masks, saying they infringe on people’s constitutional rights.
Nationally, the presidential race is still to early to call at this writing. President Donald Trump currently has 213 electoral votes, while former Vice President Joe Biden has 238 electoral votes. There are currently several states that are undecided or haven’t been called: Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Alaska, and Nevada.
The House of Representatives remains in Democratic control, and Democrats have picked up one Senate seat, but need four to take control of the upper chamber. At this hour, Republicans likely will maintain control of the Senate.

“Thank you, Southwest Washington,” Herrera said in a statement. “I am grateful for the overwhelming support I’ve received in this race and am ready to keep working for this region in Congress. My first priority has always been standing up for the people of my home region and solving problems on their behalf, and my approach won’t change. I’ve worked to make health care and prescription drugs more affordable, battled to keep our small businesses afloat and employees on the payrolls during this pandemic, and delivered vital relief to families and during this challenging year.
“We have our work cut out for us in the next two years to get through this challenging time and return our lives back to normal, but I know we can do it. My sleeves are already rolled up, and I’m ready to support our communities to get it done.
“The results show that folks in Southwest Washington want an effective solver representing them in Congress. You have my word: I will continue working to keep this region as the greatest in the country to raise a family, earn a living and spend your retirement.
“Again, I’m so incredibly grateful to the voters of Southwest Washington for entrusting me to be their voice in Congress.”
