Incumbent Democrats Ruth Kagi and Cindy Ryu are headed to victory and a return to the state House of Representatives tonight based on early results for the 32nd Legislative District.
Kagi, who moved to northwest Seattle from Lake Forest Park in order to keep her seat after redistricting, will serve her eighth term in the Legislature as the 32nd District's Position 2 representative.
Kagi, a policy analyst and community volunteer before running for the Legislature in 1998, leads Republican challenger Robert Reedy, who works for JACE Environmental and lives Mountlake Terrace, 77.66 percent to 22.34 percent with 20,235 votes counted.
Kagi said education will be her primary focus in the Legislature.
Ryu, a commercial property owner and manager from Shoreline, who first won election in 2010, is headed to Olympia for her second term with a 76.48 percent to 23.52 percent lead over Republican challenger Randy Hayden of Edmonds, a general contractor, and mini storage owner, with 20,301 votes counted.
Ryu said affordability of living safely in suburban King and Snohomish Counties, especially in the face of decreased family income and less public services is her main priority in the Legislature.
The 32nd District includes Shoreline and parts of Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace and Seattle.
