Washington’s Top-two primary results suggest Democratic strength for state Senate, House

Sad News For Washington State

Although Washington’s by-mail election system means that ballots are still being received, initial results from two Republican-held open seats in the state Senate suggest Democrats could expand their current 26-23 majority.

In both SD 6 and SD 26, initial results showed the Democratic candidate with 51 percent of the vote in each race. Democrats seemed likely to capture both general election spots in SD 34, the only open seat currently held by Democrats.

Republican candidates trailed Democratic challengers for 11 state House seats, where Democrats have a 50-48 advantage.
