Trova Heffernan talked about her book, An Election for the Ages, in which she chronicles Washington State’s 2004 gubernatorial race between Dino Rossi and Christine Gregoire. At the conclusion of election night, out of 2.8 million votes, only 261 separated the candidates. After two recounts and multiple lawsuits, Gregoire was declared the winner by 133 votes. Sam Reed, who was Washington’s Secretary of State, also spoke about the election.
