The Republicans of Spokane County endorsed both incumbent Spokane County Prosecutor Steve Tucker and challenger Chris Bugbee after an election forum this week.
That left out Republican challenger Dave Stevens, who earlier earned the endorsement of the Spokane County Republican Party.
Democrat Frank Malone and self-proclaimed “Law and Order” candidate Jim Reierson were not invited to the Monday forum sponsored by Republicans of Spokane County, which endorses candidates separate from the main party.
Tucker said he also received the endorsement of the Spokane Regional Labor Council, which includes several large unions.
Bugbee earlier received the endorsement of the Spokane Police Guild.
Separately, Tucker was elected Wednesday as the secretary of the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys. He said he’ll become president of that organization in two years if he is re-elected.
