Brad Shannon over at our sister paper, The Olympian, has been doing a great job following Referendum 71. Overnight he heard back from local R-71 opposition leader, who are not conceding despite the vote trend.

“Seeing the manifold Hand of God on our behalf time and time again, we cannot help but remain strong in faith that our Lord will see us through again,” wrote co-Pastor Valerie Hartwell of the Rivers of Glory Christian Church in Lacey.

As of 1 p.m., the latest vote tally still had the measure passing 51.68 percent
to 48.32 percent. (When it’s this close, you want to use two decimal places.)
