In case you're wondering, SeaTac Prop 1—the $15 minimum wage initiative—picked up seven of the nine ballots counted today to extend its lead to a commanding 57 votes out 5,963 cast. Prop 1 now leads by almost a full percentage point, way outside a margin that could produce the slightest drop of drama. Still, expect Alaska Airlines to pay for a recount anyway, because it has plenty of money to spend on just about everything but paying its ground crew and ramp workers a living wage.
And yes, Kshama Sawant extended her margin too. She now leads Richard Conlin 50.64 percent to 49.00 percent, and by 3,021 votes.
