Dye likely will face Democrat for state House seat
Tue., Aug. 4, 2015
Voters in the legislative district south of Spokane may end up with two parties to consider in the battle to replace state Rep. Susan Fagan, who resigned in May. Republican Mary Dye, who was appointed by county commissioners to fill the 9th Legislative District seat soon after Fagan resigned, took the most votes in tonight’s primary with 48 percent. Democrat Kenneth E. Caylor, a former Othello City Council member, is in position to move to the general election to face Dye with his second-place showing of 27 percent. Former Franklin County Sheriff Richard Lathim, a Republican, was in a close third with 25 percent. More ballots will be counted in the next few days.
