I'm reading rumors that State Sen. Derek Kilmer (D-Gig Harbor) is going to declare for WA-6 soon.  I think this a positive development; certainly I would vastly prefer him to Sheldon or Hargrove.

I feel like Kilmer would be a very good fit for the district, and much more preferable to Sheldon [eww] or Hargrove [slightly less eww].

Who would the Republicans run? I can't really think of anyone, other than maybe Jan Angel.

I think he was joking. At least I hope he was --- hard to tell with that guy.

Yes I was. Although he would probably do better as a carpetbagger than Cloud would.

The Republican could be some wealthy Tacoma resident. Or perhaps Mike Lonergan wants to switch over from the Pierce County Assessor-Treasurer race (if he lives in the district).

Democrats

Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist: Posted on Facebook he's out.

Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland: “something I will take into consideration.”

State Senator Tim Sheldon: “I’ll leave the door open,”

State Senator Jim Hargrove: No quote in the article, but indicates he's thinking about it.

State Auditor Brian Sonntag: “certainly worth looking at.” (Sonntag lives in the 10th though)

Republicans

State Representative Jan Angel: "hasn’t yet had time to think about running."

Pierce County Councilmen Dick Muri and Stan Flemming: Sticking with the 10th CD race.

Previously announced candidates Jesse Young, Doug Cloud and Bob Sauerwein: Still running.

If he runs and loses we'd finally be done with him. If he wins though... *shudder*

Well if he wins that CD I don't see anything from stopping him to become Senator or Governor Tim Sheldon.

Is Kastama's vote some moderate hero ploy to get elected Secretary of State? It just seems so blatantly ostentatious.

I've been wondering the same.  It seems like an awful idea to me, since there's a qualified Republican (Wyman) who will get Republican votes.  Maybe he wants to distinguish himself clearly from the other two Democrats?  Not the strategy I would pick...

It is quite odd. I don't really know what any of the three Democrats were thinking but him especially.

Some terrible SEIU poll:

Inslee 38%
McKenna 38%

Jan Angel, the one Republican state legislator in the 6th, won't run. I hear Kitsap County Commissioner Josh Brown, a Democrat, may get in.

Judge Thomas McPhee has released the final ballot language for Referendum 74.  It cannot be appealed, and is much better for gay marriage supporters (and seems like less of a stretch in general to me):

Quote
This bill would allow same-sex couples to marry, preserve domestic partnerships only for seniors, and preserve the right of clergy or religious organizations to refuse to perform, recognize, or accommodate any marriage ceremony.

Should this bill be Approved or Rejected?

AG McKenna's old language was:

Quote
This bill would redefine marriage to allow same-sex couples to marry, apply marriage eligibility requirements without regard to gender and specify that laws using gender-specific terms like 'husband' and 'wife' include same-sex spouses.

Should this bill be Approved or Rejected?
