The two candidates running for the state Assembly 35th District got a snapshot Tuesday of which direction voters are leaning as November nears.

Two-term Republican assemblyman and former county supervisor Katcho Achadjian had a resounding win against challenger Heidi Harmon in the Tuesday primary election with 64.3 percent with all 222 precincts reporting. Harmon received 35.7 percent of the votes.

The two candidates will face off again in five months in the Nov. 4 general election.

Harmon, 44, a Democrat, has so far focused her campaign on environmental issues.

Achadjian’s campaign has been focused on his track record of bipartisanship, including efforts to fight against higher taxes, protect the rights of local governments and address California's long-term water needs.
