Incumbent Mike McGinn conceded the election for Seattle mayor to state Senator Ed Murray Thursday.

The latest election results show Murray has 56 percent of the vote.

McGinn’s campaign had held out hope that later ballots would trend in his favor. While the numbers showed some slight improvement for him Wednesday, he was still losing among those more recent ballots.

Murray and McGinn had largely campaigned with similar policy positions, but they offered contrasting styles of how to lead the Northwest's largest city. Murray's call for a more collaborative approach led him to build a broad range of endorsements and financial support.
