The Latest: Wash. US House race may feature 2 Democrats

SEATTLE (AP) — The Latest on the Washington state primary (all times local):
5:02 p.m.
A progressive Democrat has edged into the second spot in the race for the 9th Congressional District.
After Pierce county updated its ballot count Thursday night, Democrat Sarah Smith was 196 votes ahead of Republican Doug Basler. Her lead dropped slightly from the 376 vote advantage she had when King County updated its count. If her lead holds, she’d advance to the November ballot along with Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Adam Smith, who has represented the district for more than two decades.
Under Washington’s primary system, all candidates appear on the same ballot and the top two vote getters advance to the general election, regardless of party.
