Print This Post  Email This Post

The first round of results for Tuesday’s Primary Election have been released, and the early tally shows Rep. Jim McDermott leading in Congressional District No. 7 with 70.51% of the vote, ahead of second-place Republican Ron Bemis (14.84%) as well as Andrew Hughes (5.87%) and Burien’s own Goodspaceguy (0.86% ).

In the Governor’s race, Democrat Jay Inslee is leading with 46.78% to Republican Rob McKenna’s 42.93%.

This is a “top-two” election, meaning the top two winners will advance to the Nov. 6 General Election, regardless of their party affiliations.

“Washington is the first state in the country to establish a Top 2 Primary election system, rather than a party nominating system,” reads a note on the Secretary of State’s website. “A Top 2 Primary narrows the number of candidates to two. The two candidates who receive the most votes in the Primary advance to the General Election, regardless of their party preference.”
