Labor-backed candidates fare well in primary

UPDATED (Aug. 10, 2020 — 11 a.m.) — Although some of the races are still too close to call, candidates endorsed by the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO made a strong showing in Tuesday’s primary election, including several candidates who participated in the WSLC’s Path to Power program, which provides union members and local community activists with the tools and tips to run a successful political campaign.

The top two vote-getters in each of the races will advance to the general election on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Following are selected 2020 primary election results as of 7 a.m. on Thursday. The next major update will be after 4 p.m. on Wednesday. Check for the latest results.
