This in from The Associated Press:


Two Washington state Supreme Court justices have essentially clinched re-election.


Justices Mary Fairhurst and Charles Johnson each got more than the 50 percent margin needed in Tuesday’s primary to move unopposed to November’s general election.


With about 30 percent of the expected vote counted, Johnson has 58 percent. His closest opponent, James Beecher, has 30 percent.


Fairhurst has nabbed 61 percent in early returns. Her lone opponent, Michael Bond, has 38 percent.
