August 1 was the primary election and we’ve been watching several races here at the Wire, including the crowded race to become the next mayor of Seattle. So Tuesday night, we sent a team of reporters to four election night parties, which just happened to be the four candidates in the lead at the end of the night: Jenny Durkan (31.6%), Cary Moon (15.6%), Nikkita Oliver (13.9%), and Jessyn Farrell (11.8%).
Our reporters talked with candidates and their supporters before and after the preliminary results. But with the results not final until August 15, we’ll be checking the results for this race, and the other elections in Washington until then.
