New batches of mail-in ballots show Republicans are gaining seats in the Washington state House and Senate but it's not known yet which party will control the Legislature.
Since the initial vote counts from Tuesday's election, Republicans have been optimistic they can seize the state Senate.
More ballots were counted Wednesday. Democrats have been soundly defeated in three districts.: east King County's 45th and 47th districts, and Spokane's 6th district.
