OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Republican Kim Wyman has advanced to the fall election in the secretary of state’s race, where she’ll likely meet Democrat Kathleen Drew.

Wyman, Thurston County’s auditor since 2001, was garnering the most votes in early returns in Tuesday’s primary. Drew is a former state senator. She was receiving the second-most votes, outpacing two other high-profile Democrats – former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels and state Sen. Jim Kastama.

Longtime incumbent Sam Reed is retiring. Reed has been Washington’s top elections official since 2000.
