TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Democratic U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer has won his re-election bid in Washington state’s 6th Congressional District.
Kilmer, a freshman representative, defeated Republican challenger Marty McClendon.
Kilmer and McClendon have faced off before. In 2010 Kilmer defeated McClendon in a state Senate race.
The 6th District includes Tacoma, much of the Kitsap Peninsula and the Olympic Peninsula.
Kilmer succeeded retiring longtime congressman Norm Dicks in 2012.
