GOP asks judge for speedy hearing in disputed election for Washington governor

REBECCA COOK, Associated Press Writer

Republicans hoping for a new vote in the bitterly disputed Washington governor's election asked a county judge Thursday to hurry along the case.

The request to Judge John E. Bridges came eight days after Democrat Gov. Christine Gregoire was sworn into an office that she had at first apparently lost to Republican Dino Rossi but then was found to have won by 129 votes.

The Republicans want Bridges to order a revote, arguing that mistakes during the ballot-counting have forever obscured the true results of the November vote. Democrats want to delay discovery until the court considers the underlying constitutional issues, such as whether the state constitution even allows a revote.

No matter Bridges' ruling, the case will likely be appealed, but his actions will set the tone and define the boundaries.

The judge was also expected to hear motions from counties that want out of the Republicans' legal challenge.
