Shavers tops Gilday in District 10 state rep race
Gilday-Shavers will be November’s closest contest
August 17, 2022
First time candidate Clyde Shavers has won once, topping State Rep. Greg Gilday (R-Camano Island) for his legislative district 10 position 1 seat in the Aug. 2 primary election. Shavers won convincingly in Skagit County, with 58.5% of the vote. Districtwide, it was close, 51.9-47.9% and an almost 2,000 vote margin. Tuesday the remaining 250 or so votes in the three county district were counted and each county’s totals certified. Not all outstanding ballots were in the 10th district.
This race is competitive. Gilday can win in November, as Dave Paul did in 2020 after losing his August reel...
