CORRECTION: Smaller independent expenditures in Cann-Pollet race in 46th Legislative District

Sunday, August 26, 2012

In my recent report on the election between incumbent 46th District Democratic State Rep. Gerry Pollet and fellow Democrat Sylvester Cann, I misstated the amounts of independent expenditures spent supporting the candidates.

Cann has support from independent expenditures of $12,173, with none opposing him. I earlier had reported the supporting amount as an opposing amount. The supporting amount that I had reported at $28,119 actually was campaign debt. Cann has reported raising $94,018 and spending $58,787.

Pollet has reported raising $72,206 and spending $51,498, with campaign debt of $685 and no independent expenditures either supporting him or opposing him.

Incumbent Pollet and challenger Cann will run off in the Nov. 6 general election after they were the only candidates on the Aug. 7 primary ballot.

Pollet outpolled Cann in the primary with 59.08 percent of the vote to 39.87 percent for Cann. 

Pollet won appointment to the position last year after David Frockt, who had won election to the seat in 2010, moved to the Senate to replace the late Scott White.

Lake Forest Park and Kenmore have been added to the northeast Seattle part of the District.
