Dorn running strong in state schools race

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - It's looking like Randy Dorn will advance to the fall election uncontested in the race for superintendent of public instruction.

Dorn, the incumbent, was getting over 50 percent of the primary vote Tuesday. Dorn was the only superintendent candidate who has raised any money to support his campaign.

Under Washington's top-two primary system, the top two vote getters running for superintendent of public instruction go on to the general election, unless one person earns 50 percent plus one vote. In that case the candidate getting more than 50 percent moves on to the general election alone.
