32nd Legislative District: Familiar Faces Top Primary Votes

Cindy Ryu for Position 1 and Ruth Kagi for Position 2 get most votes.

In Tuesday's primary, it was two familiar faces who got the most votes in the 32nd Legislative District: Cindy Ryu and Ruth Kagi.

The 32nd District serves parts of Edmonds and all of Woodway, in addition to Shoreline and Lake Forest Park.

In Position 1, incumbent Democrat Ryu picked up 4,376 votes (66 percent) to Republican Randy Hayden's 2,252 (34 percent). Both will advance to the general election Nov. 6, however, since they were the only two on the ballot.

Democratic incumbent Kagi picked up 4,238 votes (64 percent) in the Position 2 race. As it stands now, she would face Republican Robert Reedy, who got 1,763 votes (27 percent), in the general election. The third member in the race was Republican Eric R. Alvey, who picked up 646 votes (10 percent).

(Updated figures will be released Wednesday at 5 p.m.)

Ryu (D-Shoreline), the first Korean-American woman elected to the Washington state Legislature, is aiming for her second term.

Kagi (D-Seattle) began her first term in 1999. She recently moved to Seattle from Lake Forest Park to keep her seat in the 32nd District.
