Dow Constantine leads for King County executive, Lambert in trouble

Change may be coming to the King County Council, but probably not to the county executive’s office, according to early election results on Tuesday. Votes counted so far show incumbent King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert trailing her opponent, Sarah Perry, by more than 10 percentage points. Lambert, a former state legislator, represents District 3, which includes suburban and rural communities east of Lake Sammamish.

King County Executive Dow Constantine, who served in the state legislature and on the King County Council before beating eight other candidates for county executive in 2009, was supposed to run for governor—until the current governor, Jay Inslee, decided he wanted to keep the job. With a bid for higher office thwarted until at least 2024, many political observers expected Constantine to step down this year rather than seek a fourth term.
