Congratulations to Berniecrat Pramila Jayapal, who won her Democratic Primary against two opponents last night in Washington State. Jayapal came in first. Her two opponents, Joe McDermott and Brady Walkinshaw, are waiting for the final count to see who will run against her. (Top two candidates run in the general election.) Seattle Times:

Pramila Jayapal took a commanding lead in Tuesday’s vote count in the race to replace retiring Rep. Jim McDermott in Washington’s 7th Congressional District seat.

Jayapal had 38 percent of the vote and will advance to the November general election.

“We’re building a movement that can clearly stake out a positive vision for the future of America at a time when too many people feel cynical about change, and when too many people are struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table,” Jayapal said Tuesday night.
