Election results finalized
September 3, 2014
Final primary election results differed little from election night, setting the stage for the November general election.
In the judicial race, Lisa O’Toole, of Newcastle, looks like she could cruise to victory, having garnered more than 60.5 percent of the primary vote in a three-way race. Her opponent will be Sammamish’s Marcus Naylor, who earned a little more than 20 percent. Snoqualmie’s Rick Leo got 19 percent, and will not move on to the general election.
The only other contested race in Sammamish was for U.S. Congress, where incumbent Rep. Dave Reichert (R-8) also looks good in November. He won nearly 59 percent of the vote in another three-way primary. Jason Ritchie (D) got almost 32 percent while Keith Arnold got less than 9 percent. Reichert and Ritchie will appear on the general election ballot.
In Legislative races, incumbents all had a good showing.
In the 41st District, which represents the southern half of Sammamish, Rep. Tana Senn (D) finished ahead of Bill Stinson (R) by a 60-40 margin. Rep. Judy Clibborn (D) trounced Alex O’Neil 75-25.
In the 45th District, which covers the northern half of the city, incumbent Rep. Roger Goodman (D) is looking good in his rematch against Joel Hussey, winning by a 54-46 margin.
Rep. Larry Springer (D) is also well ahead of challenger Brendan Woodward, 56-44.
Sen. Andy Hill (R) finished ahead of Matt Isenhower 54-46.
Ballots for the Nov. 4 general election will go out in October.
