Democrats take early leads in 6th, 10th congressional districts

Both Democrats in the 6th and 10th congressional districts jumped out to comfortable leads in initial returns.

Democratic state Sen. Derek Kilmer was leading Republican Bill Driscoll 59 percent to 41 percent in the race to replace U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks in Washington’s 6th Congressional District. Dicks said in March he would not run for a 19th term in Congress.

The district stretches north from Tacoma and  includes most of the Kitsap Peninsula and Bainbridge Island.

In the newly created 10th Congressional District, Democrat Denny Heck had 55 percent to Republican Dick Muri’s 45 percent in initial results.

The 10th District, created after the 2010 Census, is centered around Olympia and includes Lakewood and Puyallup.
