Incumbent Democratic 7th District Congressman Jim McDermott will face Republican Ron Bemis in the Nov. 8 general election, after McDermott led the polling in final results that State officials certified Friday, with McDermott getting nearly 71 percent of votes cast in the King and Snohomish County parts of the District to 15 percent for Bemis.

Eliminated in the primary were Democrat Andrew Hughes with less than 6 percent, Republican Scott Sutherland with 3 percent, Democrat Charles Allen with more than 3 percent, Democrat Don Rivers with less than 2 percent and independent Goodspaceguy with less than 1 percent.

Here are vote totals for the King County part of the district – Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, most of Seattle and Seattle’s southwest suburbs – and the Snohomish County part of the district – Edmonds, Woodway and nearby unincorporated areas:
