OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Democratic U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen has held off a challenge by Republican challenger John Koster to win re-election to Washington state's 2nd Congressional District.

With nearly all of the expected vote counted in early returns, Larsen led by 4,408 votes, and held 51 percent of the vote, compared to Koster's 49 perent.

Larsen trailed Koster by less than 1,500 votes after the initial count on election night last week, but took the lead on Wednesday and has steadily increased it.

The 2nd District spans the northern part of Western Washington from just north of Seattle to the border with Canada, and includes the San Juan Islands.
