Washington voters cast their ballots in the state’s primary election on Tuesday. The highest profile race is the bid for governor, which pits current Republican Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna against Democratic Congressman Jay Inslee. The state has a “top-two” primary, meaning the two candidates with the most votes advance to the general election. McKenna and Inslee are both expected to easily advance, but the primary will still be closely watched as a preview of what may happen in November. Recent polls show Inslee, who has trailed most of the election cycle, pulling ahead of McKenna.
