Democratic incumbents for state Legislative Districts 1 and 25 emerged from this August’s primary election well ahead of their GOP challengers, according to preliminary results from King County.
In the Senate, Derek Stanford (D-Bothell) garnered nearly 70% of the vote with 5,781 cast in his favor. His opponent, Art Coday of Woodinville, received nearly 30%. Both Stanford and Coday will appear on the ballot in November.
