Washington Senate Primary
28 candidates, including 'GoodSpaceGuy' are on the ballot alongside incumbent Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell. Former state Republican chair Susan Hutchison is the most familiar of those. Regardless of who advances, Cantwell is expected to win a 4th term in November.
Washington House Primaries
There's a contested primary in each of the state's 10 congressional districts. The 8th district looks to be the most competitive race in November. Republican Dave Reichert is retiring. There are a dozen candidates on the ballot. Republican Dino Rossi is expected to get the top spot, with one of three Democrats (Kim Schrier, Shannon Hader or Jason Rittereiser) likely to come in 2nd.
All other incumbents are running and likely to move on to the general election. Outside of the 8th district, there's a small chance the GOP-held 3rd and/or 5th districts could be competitive this fall. The aggregate party vote in these three districts may provide some clue to how November will turn out.
