WA elex: French, Johnson nearly tied in Spo Co commish primary

Democrat Mary Lou Johnson has a 62-vote lead over incumbent Republican Commissioner Al French in tonight's 3rd Commissioner District primary.

But the two of them are significantly ahead of Bonnie Mager, a former commissioner running as an independent. 

Johnson and French each have about 36 percent of the vote, while Mager trails with 27 percent. She'll need a huge pickup in the late count to displace one of them in the top two primary.
