McCloud defeats Sanders in Supreme Court race

Update:  9:08 p.m.

Longtime appellate attorney Sheryl Gordon McCloud defeated former state Supreme Court Justice Richard Sanders for a six-year term on the state Supreme Court.

McCloud was leading with 56 percent of the vote, including more than 64 percent in vote-heavy King County.

Sanders served on the court for 15 years before losing his seat two years ago amid controversial remarks about certain minority groups having a crime problem.

Both candidates portrayed themselves as passionate defenders of constitutional rights.

But in their battle to replace Justice Tom Chambers, who is retiring from the court, McCloud criticized Sanders for making what she called “intemperate comments” when he served on the bench  was a justice.
