It came in a normally Democratic district, so the win today of Democratic incumbent (newly appointed) Representative Sharon Wylie over Republican Craig Riley (a Republican legislative nominee in this district last year) isn’t a shock – it’s more or less what you would expect. That would be fair to say, too, about the 56.56% of the vote (at last count) Wylie has collected. (Riley has come closer to election than that a times in the past, however.)
Maybe what you could fairly say about that, is that the political norms in Clark are holding – no massive shift at the moment. Maybe a little less reflective, though, of 2010 than of some of the elections that preceded it.
This was, by the way, the only legislative race in the Northwest today featuring candidates of opposing parties.Share on Facebook
