Democratic gain from Republican

Since Maria Cantwell had only won by 2,229 votes, an automatic recount was triggered. Cantwell won the recount, but it was still one of the closest elections in Washington State history.

On November 17, 2000, Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed declared Cantwell the senator-elect.
