The election comes weeks after Democratic primary voters in New York's mayoral race chose a centrist former cop who balked at calls from the left to “defund the police.” The question is whether voters in overwhelmingly liberal Seattle will also back moderate candidates who reject pleas to reduce police budgets or candidates who support the agenda espoused so forcefully by protesters during last summer’s rallies.

Her comments come at a time when North and South Korea are in talks to hold a summit as part of efforts to restore relations.
