Of the eight candidates currently running for the post of Seattle Mayor, six have confirmed their intention to participate in the Forum including Mayor Mike McGinn, Bruce Harrell, Ed Murray, Kate Martin, Joey Gray, and Mary Martin. Charlie Staadecker’s campaign did not respond to the invitation while Peter Steinbrueck reported a schedule conflict.

Following the most recent polls and endorsements, the race toward August’s primary appears to be down to frontrunners McGinn and Murray with Harrell and Steinbrueck continuing to challenge for the “top two” opportunity to go through into November.
