Spokane County commissioner races

As of Tuesday night, the races were very close:
District 1
Todd Mielke, 12,070
Kim Thorburn, 11962

District 2
Mark Richard, 10,981
Brian Sayrs, 11,493

A couple things to remember:

Thousands of ballots left to count, so the spread could change.

The primary is held in the district, the general is countywide. It’s unclear whether that benefits the Republican incumbents or the Democratic challengers. District 3 currently has a Democratic commissioner, Bonnie Mager; but it had a Republican commissioner, Phil Harris, for 12 years before that; and a Democrat, Pat Mummey, for eight years before that; and a Republican, Grant Peterson for four years before that.
