      I haven’t updated yet today (note the last-night time check). The state results continued evolving into the night. Will do a morning update as soon as I can.

      No, Wyman still leads, 50 percent, to 45 percent for Tarleton. Maybe you’re looking at the King County-only results? These (as linked above) are the statewide results:
