In GOP battle of Sutherland vs. Low, Democrats may tip the scale

LAKE STEVENS — Rep. Robert Sutherland’s future as a state lawmaker may rest in the hands of Democrats.

The same can be said for his opponent, Snohomish County Councilmember Sam Low.

Both are Republicans. Together they garnered 60% of votes cast in last week’s primary in the 39th Legislative Districts. The rest went to Democratic candidates Claus Joens and Karl de Jong.

With Sutherland and Low expected to split Republican votes in the general election this fall, corralling support from Democrats will be requisite to win a two-year term representing communities in Snohomish and Skagit counties.


Basically there are two Republicans advancing to the general election

Claus Joens(Prefers Democratic Party) 8,037 23.04%

Robert J. Sutherland(Prefers Republican Party) 11,365 32.57%

Karl de Jong(Prefers Democratic Party) 5,794 16.61%

Sam Low(Prefers Republican Party) 9,641 27.63%
