Idaho results rolling in

Posted By on Tue, Nov 4, 2008 at 8:08 PM

The polls are closed in Idaho and the numbers are rolling in. Ada County released more than 75,000 absentee ballot numbers shortly before 9 p.m. showing McCain leading Obama 51% to 47 % in the county.


  • Democrat Walt Minnick was up by more than 5,000 votes on Republican Bill Sali after the initial reporting.
  • Lt. Gov. Jim Risch had almost 4,000 more votes than Democrat Larry LaRocco in Ada County and Risch was up 55% to LaRocco's 37% at about 10 p.m. in statewide early returns. Rex Rammell, elk farmer and independent candidate was polling at 5%.
  • Ada County legislative seats all came in initially in favor of incumbents.
We have left the Modern Hotel bar, which was packed with enthusiastic Obama supporters earlier tonight. We are back at BW HQ, listening to NPR and composing our Wednesday story on this historic election... so don't expect too many more posts. Live blogging is for the bloggers...
