OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Pierce County Councilman Dick Muri and TVW founder Denny Heck have advanced to the fall election in Washington's newest congressional district.

Heck won the race comfortably on Tuesday as he picked up the establishment Democratic support over fellow party member Jennifer Ferguson. Muri finished second in the top-two race, besting fellow Republican Stan Flemming after a heated primary contest between the two. Flemming is also on the Pierce County council.

The 10th District is a new seat formed by the redistricting process and is anchored around the Olympia area.
