Yakima attorney to face state Rep. Johnson as write-in candidate
YAKIMA, Wash. -- State Rep. Norm Johnson will have an opponent in November's general election.

The Secretary of State's Office says Yakima attorney Michael Scott Brumback received more than 3 percent of the vote in the Aug. 5 primary as a write-in candidate. That is well above the 1 percent needed for a write-in candidate to qualify for the general election.

Johnson is running for his fourth term in the State House. The Republican was first elected in 2008.

Brumback has stated no party preference.

The two men are running to represent the 14th Legislative District. It includes parts of Yakima, West Valley, Tieton, Naches, Cowiche and much of the Yakama Nation, along with Klickitat and Skamania Counties and part of Clark County.
