On this race:
Inslee carried the primary with a slight lead, thanks largely to heavy support from traditionally Democratic-leaning Puget Sound voters. Both candidates have made education improvement and economic recovery key parts of their campaigns, but -- as expected -- differ on how they'd accomplish those goals.
|Jay Inslee (D)||1,460,770||51.20 %|
|Rob McKenna (R)||1,391,168||48.80 %|
