King County Council District 3
King County Council Member Kathy Lambert was reelected to a fourth, four-year term on Nov. 7, snaring 57.21% of the vote across District 3, which stretches from Bellevue to Snoqualmie pass and from North Bend on the south to the Snohomish County line.
But in Sammamish, Lambert captured only 52.49% of the vote against John Murphy, a Democrat, from North Bend. Lambert is a Republican. The race is non-partisan, but parties lined up behind both candidates.
Lambert trailed all Sammamish City Council candidates and the winner in the Sammamish portion of the 45th Legislative District.
Lambert was unopposed four years ago.
