The 32nd Legislative District will have a meaningful contest in the August primary for at least one position now that Shoreline City Councilwoman Doris Fujioka McConnell (pictured) has filed as a Democratic candidate for the position now held by Democratic State Rep. Maralyn Chase.

The other candidates are Democrat Cindy Ryu, who filed Monday for the seat, and Republican Arthur Coday Jr., who announced his candidacy after dropping out of the race for U.S. Senate.

Ryu is a former Shoreline City Councilwoman and mayor. Codey is a Shoreline physician who withdrew as a U.S. Senate candidate after Dino Rossi announced his candidacy.

McConnell told me Tuesday afternoon that she had filed online with the secretary of state.

The top two vote-getters in the primary qualify for the general election.

Chase is giving up the position to run for the State Senate seat that Democrat Darlene Fairley is vacating. Chase and Republican David Baker filed for the position Monday.

Democratic State Rep. Ruth Kagi and her Republican opponent, Gary Gagliardi, also filed Monday.

McConnell told me that other candidates may file against Chase and Baker for the Senate seat.
