This first batch of returns is from Kitsap County only, the portion of the 26th Legislative District where Democrats tend to do better than Republicans.

Republicans tend to do better in the Pierce County portion.

So it’s significant that Kitsap County Commissioner Jan Angel, a Republican, holds a 10,089 to 9,783 vote lead over former Port Orchard Mayor Kim Abel, Democrat, in the race to succeed Rep. Pat Lantz, D-Gig Harbor, who is retiring.
