Candidate filings draw primary race for 30th District state Senate seat

Representative positions have contested races for general election

The Aug. 7 primary election has drawn a three-way race for the 30th District State Senate seat. Filings closed last Friday.

Republican incumbent Mark Miloscia is being challenged by two democrats, Tirzah Idahosa and Claire Wilson, Federal Way Public Schools board president.

Both state representative positions in the 30th District will have contested races on the Nov. 7 general ballot.

For Position 1, Republican Linda Kochmar filed against incumbent Democrat Mike Pellicciotti. Kochmar, a former Federal Way city councilwoman, mayor and deputy mayor, held the seat for four years before losing to Pellicciotti in 2016.

Democrat Kristine Reeves, who holds the Position 2 seat, is being challenged by Mark Greene, who has unsuccessfully run for a number of state and municipal seats.

Ballots for the August primary will be mailed July 18.
