Kim Schrier claims hotly contested 8th District as Dino Rossi concedes
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Kim Schrier has declared victory in a race for U.S. House in Washington state, becoming the first Democrat to win in the sprawling 8th District that stretches from Seattle's eastern suburbs to central Washington farm country. "Congress is broken, and people in the 8th District are ready for a community pediatrician to bring a dose of common sense to DC," Schrier said in a statement.
