Washington's race for governor tied

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Washington's race for governor is currently tied with both candidates having 46% of voters.

A survey conducted last week while ballots were being distributed to voters shows both Jay Inslee and Rob McKenna are even among voters.

The survey showed that Inslee was favorited among women while McKenna was getting the support of 19% of people who voted for President Obama in 2008.

The survey also showed voters were in favor of the state's leading ballot measures, with gay marriage winning by 17 percentage points, charter schools up by the same amount, and marijuana legalization ahead by 16 points.
