Snohomish County Council member John Koster maintained a slight lead over U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen in the early returns of the Congressional District 2 race on the evening of Election Day. As of 11:15 p.m. Nov. 2, Republican challenger Koster had received 87,687 counted votes, or 50.41 percent of the counted vote, while Democratic incumbent Larsen had received 86,258 counted votes, or 49.59 percent of the counted vote, with 64 percent of the expected total votes counted.
Although Larsen deemed the race too close to call in a press statement issued at 9:45 p.m. Nov. 2, he expressed confidence that he would win once all the votes were counted.
