Democrats Jessyn Farrell and Sarajane Siegfriedt continue to be headed for a November runoff for the position that retiring State Rep. Phyllis Kenney now holds.

Farrell widened her lead in the six-candidate contest Friday as she expanded her portion of the vote to nearly 30 percent from the 28 percent she had Tuesday.

Siegfriedt held steady Friday with the same 22 percent that she had Tuesday.

The two were comfortably ahead of the other two Democrats, one Republican and an independent in the race, Republican Scott Hodges held third place in the top-two primary with 18 percent of the vote, followed by Democrat Shelley Crocker with 16 percent, Democrat Dusty Hoerler with 12 percent and independent Stan Lippmann with 2 percent.

Democrats Crocker and Hoerler stood fourth and fifth in early primary returns despite leading the candidates in fundraising.

The District includes Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and northeast Seattle.
