“Incumbent Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes secured a crushing victory over challenger Scott Lindsay, scoring nearly 73 percent of the roughly 98,000 votes counted Tuesday night.

Holmes, 61, has been in office eight years, first beating former City Attorney Tom Carr in 2009 and running unopposed in 2013. Lindsay, 39, is the former public-safety adviser to former Mayor Ed Murray.

“I’m very happy for such a decisive vote … I think I had a great record to talk about,” Holmes said. “It looks like the other races are pretty clear, so we can get down to work.”
