Just look at the returns. Democrat Rob Cerqui has a 25-vote lead over Republican Bruce Dammeier in the race to replace Rep. Joyce McDonald, R-Puyallup, in the House.

It’s 5,995 to 5,970.

Now, that is a swing district. And that is where the political parties and caucuses tend to pour money. It’s anybody’s ball game and neither side wants to think what would have happened if they’d spent just a little more money on their respective candidate.
