Kathleen Drew: Tuesday was a good night for women on the ballot

Kathleen Drew, a Democrat who appeared poised to advance to the general election for secretary of state, said primary night was a good night for women.

Drew was ahead of fellow Democrats Greg Nickels and Jim Kastama in early returns. Republican Kim Wyman was in first (although Drew noted that the Democrats combined to get more votes than Wyman).

“There’s been a very strong vote in favor of Democrats tonight and I think also in favor of women on the ballot,” said Drew, who arrived at Jay Inslee’s campaign headquarters, where Democrats are celebrating, at about 10:30 p.m.

At 11 p.m., the party at the headquarters showed no signs of stopping.
