Cook, Andrews lead in Kitsap County assessor race

Republican Phil Cook and Democrat Paul Andrews will battle for the job of Kitsap County assessor in November.

The pair survived a four-way scrum for the post in this week's Primary Election. The race also featured Democrat Garry Sobeck and Republican W. Sean Smith.

In the first vote tally on Election Night, Cook led the pack with 12,208 votes, or 31 percent of the overall vote.

Andrews was second with 10,036 votes, and 26 percent.

Sobeck finished third in the initial tally, with 9,392 votes and 24 percent of all votes cast.

Smith was last. He had 6,820 votes, or 17 percent of the vote.

Under Washington state's "top two" primary, Cook and Andrews will advance to the General Election ballot.
