Democratic state Reps. Timm Ormsby and Marcus Riccelli have won new terms representing Washington’s 3rd Legislative District, which covers the city of Spokane.
The battle for a state House seat representing central Spokane was sparked by an earlier run-in and social media conduct. Incumbent Democrat Marcus Riccelli blocked his Republican challenger, Tom Taylor, on Facebook earlier this year after Taylor attacked commenters on Riccelli’s Facebook page.
