Incumbent candidates outpaced challengers in the initial election results released Tuesday night.
The primary set up a showdown for a 41st Legislative District in the state House of Representatives, a competitive congressional race and a chance to elect a judge to the King County District Court bench.
State Rep. Judy Clibborn, a Mercer Island Democrat seeking a fifth term, outpaced Stephen Strader, a Bellevue Republican, and independent Orion S. Webster.
Clibborn represents the 41st Legislative District — Talus and other Cougar Mountain communities, plus Mercer Island, Newcastle and parts of Bellevue, Renton and unincorporated King County.
The incumbent led Strader by about 55 percent to about 40 percent to set up the general election contest. Webster, like Strader, a political newcomer, trailed at 5 percent.
