Joe Pakootas, a Democrat and a newcomer to politics, received 31 percent of the early returns, setting up his challenge of District 5 Republican Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers. Read more about that race here.

For the Spokane County Commission, incumbent Al French, a business-friendly Republican and the subject of a recent Inlander story "The Bulldozer," was trailing early against Democratic challenger Mary Lou Johnson, with Bonnie Mager in third. 

In Washington's 3rd Legislative District, State Rep. Marcus Riccelli appears to be heading toward a rematch of his 2012 opponent, Tim Benn. Read more here.

In Spokane Valley, Bob McCaslin Jr. is leading a field of Republicans for a seat vacated by McCaslin's late father, who spent 30 years in Olympia. More here.
