The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the top-two primary system in Washington state. That means the top two finishers in a primary advance to the general, regardless of political affiliation. It means two people from the same party could face off.
The Republican and Democratic parties fought this. Now the state can implement the system preferred by voters.
Given voter disgust at how primaries are controlled by parties, wonder if this will mean changing systems throughout the country, with Washington state being the model.
