SEATTLE (AP) -- Democratic U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell has clinched re-election, defeating Republican newcomer Michael Baumgartner to win her third term.
  
Cantwell, Washington state's junior senator, led from the start, amassing a war chest worth more than $8 million that dwarfed Baumgartner's effort, which added up to about $1 million.
  
Baumgartner is a first-term state senator from the Spokane area who previously worked as a foreign policy consultant.
