WA elex: McMorris Rodgers will face Pakootas in general

Republican Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers will face Democrat Joe Pakootas in the general election as she tries to win her sixth term in Congress.

In early returns, McMorris Rodgers has about half the votes currently being tallied, while Pakootas has slightly less than a third, but more than the other two challengers, Independent Dave Wilson and Republican Tom Horne, combined.
