News roundup: Morning after primary
Money is flowing in the race for Kshama Sawant's seat on the Seattle City Council
Nearly $1 million has been raised by candidates in that race, in direct donations and through the city's democracy vouchers program.
Sawant has raised the most by far of any City Council candidate. She said she'll need it to fend off business-backed spending aimed at defeating her.
Thousands of dollars have come in from outside spending targeting Sawant.
Sawant supporter Nikkita Oliver says she actually takes some consolation from that outside spending.
She says it signals that progressive policies for more equitable development in Seattle are having an impact.
“Otherwise they wouldn’t be investing so much money in trying to get rid of one person. So while it bothers me, it also encourages me that our movements are starting to drive things forward," Oliver said.

He's leading the most crowded council race: 13 candidates in all.
Heidi Wills said she's feeling pretty good about second place. Wills is trying to rejoin the City Council after losing a re-election bid in 2003. She lost that race after a campaign finance scandal.

Confident lead in Port of Seattle race
Independent Fred Felleman currently has 70% of the vote. Last time around in 2016 he held off eight other candidates. This year it was a three-way race.
Felleman said the Port is the most important organization no one's heard of: "It's not just building docks or expanding airplanes," he said. "It's really to create opportunities."
