Incumbent Democrat state representative Judy Clibborn — who represents the 41st Legislative District, which includes Newcastle — trounced novice Republican candidate Stephen Strader 57 percent to 43 percent in initial election results released Tuesday night.

The race for the other 41st District House seat remained tighter on Election Day. Incumbent Democrat Marcie Maxwell pulled in 51.1 percent to 48.8 percent for Republican Peter Dunbar, a Mercer Island physician.

Democrat Randy Gordon — who was appointed to the 41st District Senate seat in January after Fred Jarrett resigned to become deputy King County executive — trailed Republican Steve Litzow, a Mercer Island city councilman, as Election Day ended. Gordon garnered 47 percent; Litzow 53 percent.

The measure to increase the King County sales tax rate to pay for criminal justice services trailed in early returns and a state liquor-privatization measure lagged.

Republican Dino Rossi, a Sammamish resident and former Issaquah state senator, remained locked in a tight race against incumbent U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, Democrat in a close fight for a fourth term.

Republican Congressman Dave Reichert held off a spirited challenge from Democrat Suzan DelBene to represent Issaquah and the 8th Congressional District in the other Washington. DelBene conceded the race at a post-election party in Bellevue.

Donna Tucker outpaced Larry Mitchell in the race to be a King County District Court judge. Issaquah attorney John L. O’Brien trailed appointed Judge Michael Finkle in the other race to sit on the Northeast Division bench.

The initial tally from King County Elections at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday included more than 365,000 ballots received, processed and counted on Election Day.

Proposition 1, the county measure to raise the sales tax rate to 2 cents per $10 purchase, appeared to be headed for defeat; 56 percent of voters decided against the tax proposal. Initiative 1100, the Costco-backed measure to privatize the state-run liquor system, trailed in a closer contest Tuesday night.
