(Port Angeles) – Three local races will have primaries in August.
After last week's filing period, more than two candidates filed for U.S. Congress, one of two state house seats and Clallam County commissioner.
In the race for Sixth District Congress, incumbent Democrat Derek Kilmer will face Republican Marty McClendon, Green Party member Doug Milholland and independent W. McPherson.
Incumbent Democrat Steve Tharinger drew two challengers for his state house seat. Also filing were Republican Thomas Greisamer of Moclips and Sequim neurologist Stafford Conway, who is running as a libertarian.
Three candidates are vying to replace Mike Doherty on the Clallam County commission. Democrat and current Port Angeles city council member Sissi Bruch, Republican and former commission candidate Bill Peach and Forks mayor Bryon Monohon all filed.
The top two vote getters in the August primary will advance to November.
Other contested races in the county that will be on the general election ballot are for community development director, where incumbent Sheila Roark-Miller is being challenged by local architect Mary Ellen Winborn.
Republicans Will Payne and Mark Nichols will battle for prosecutor.
Shoona Riggs and Kim Yacklin have both filed for county auditor.
District Court Judge Rick Porter is being challenged by local bar association president Cathy Marshall.
The five other local races feature incumbents running unopposed.
