    ...Jim McDermott is shown as "unopposed" in the national websites, because no Republicans filed against him.  Not even in our ridiculous "top two" primary -- in that, he ran against three self-identified Democrats and another candidate who didn't state a party preference.

    The "no preference" guy finished (a distant) second in the primary, so he was on the general election ballot.  In the first drop of results last night, that guy got 19% of the vote.

    BTW, from what little I know of the guy, he was challenging McDermott from the left.  Ah, Seattle!
