Becker, Lachney lead for Senate in 2nd Legislative District

Republican state Sen. Randi Becker of Eatonville is dispatching a challenge from within her party, according to early results.

Republican James Vaughn of Orting, a former Army budget analyst, is running third behind Democrat Bruce Lachney (first) and Becker. The top two advance to the Nov. 6 general election, where Becker hopes to win a second term representing a district with a libertarian tinge that spans from Yelm to Puyallup’s South Hill.

Democratic leaders recruited Lachney, an Eatonville cranberry farmer and former school board member, to try to retake the Senate seat in hopes of hanging on to or expanding their slim 27-22 majority.
