Bellevue City Councilman Don Davidson’s chances of re-election dimmed further today as Vandana Slatter widened her lead for the second straight day in the top-two primary.
Slatter and Davidson are competing to face Lynne Robinson in the general election. Robinson took 48 percent of the primary vote.
Slatter was 244 votes ahead of Davidson after Friday afternoon’s vote count. She had 26.4 percent of the vote to Davidson’s 25.2 percent.
Despite his fading prospects for re-election, Davidson said he wasn’t prepared to concede.
“Obviously we aren’t going in the right direction, as far as the reported count,” he said. “But on the other hand there’s more to be counted, and I’m not willing to throw it in.”
