Appointed Seattle Port Commissioner Stephanie Bowman jumped to a commanding lead in her bid for a full term, winning nearly two-thirds of the vote in a three-way primary race.

Bowman took 65.9 percent of Tuesday’s returns. Michael Wolfe came in second with 18.5 percent, while Andrew Pilloud trailed with 14.9 percent. The top two candidates will move on to November’s general election.

Bowman, executive director of the nonprofit Washington Asset Building Coalition and former manager of federal government affairs for the Port of Tacoma, was appointed in April to fill the vacancy created when Rob Holland resigned. She has called for more cooperation among Washington’s ports.

Wolfe, who has a background in the travel and tourism industry, touted his ability to build business at Sea-Tac Airport and in the cruise-ship industry.

Pilloud, a software engineer and a one-time Ron Paul campaign worker, advocated a focus on job creation and less intrusive airport-security screening.
