Any chance those cop killer commercials will drag down Ferguson? It reminds me of the sleazy ads that allowed McKenna to beat Senn in 2004.

Are there any more debates left in the governor's race?  I'm beginning to lose hope.  I sure hope you guys don't make it 32 years of Democrat governors!

There's one tonight, but I don't think they'll have much of an impact. I'm hoping McKenna can pull it off, but its definitely looking better for Inslee.

I think it's ridiculous that they would schedule it the same night as the VP debate.  I still think McKenna can do it, though.

Agreed, but in the year 2012 "good attack ad" is kind of an oxymoron.  I doubt any of these ads are having an impact.

I mean, honestly, a bunch of old guys with AWM syndrome discussing Jay Inslee's record at a Denny's......

The minimum wage ad is certainly better than McKenna's dumb "Jay Inslee hates firefighters!" ads.

Probably. You are going to start seeing a lot of Driscoll ads on TV next week. And his direct mail has started.

Side note: Apparently Sheldon supported Obama in 2008? I'm surprised.

If the WA GOP provides better candidates that don't hate cities and mass transit, and we might just avoid seeing a 36 or 40-year run.  Otherwise, they should prepare to follow their California counterparts into near-irrelevance.

In my opinion the minimum wage ads seem kinda silly. While McKenna's firefighter ads are even more ridiculous and just wrong, they paint a more frightening picture (I could see people believing them and caring about it).

Yes on R-74 has gotten pretty much every major/minor newspaper endorsement...

Another one from Eastern Washington (The Tri-City Herald):

I think the Tri-Cities Herald actually was neutral on R-71.  Must be changes in the editorial board.

As far as I know, the only Reject editorial so far was a pretty lukewarm one from the Longview Daily News.  I imagine the Centralia Chronicle will probably be anti- too.

None of this is particularly surprising, though.  Proposition 8 didn't really get newspaper endorsements either.

22 days!

I think it's strange they didn't write for the yes side... I know Longview isn't socially liberal, but it sure is when compared to Wenatchee, Walla Walla, or the Tri-Cities.

Has the Yakima Herald choosen sides yet?

I'm pretty sure the Heraldgave a pretty solid endorsement to R-71 in 2009.  I'd assume they'll be going with Approve again.

Random, but I think I just figured out why Columbia County (or at least Dayton) is relatively moderate on social issues relative to Garfield County/Pomeroy: there's a United Church of Christ in Dayton with a lesbian pastor.

I finally got around to updating my absentee ballot address. Shocked
But I'm starting to think my votes will be on the losing end on every issue. Although I have a hard time voting for any candidates because our idiotic top two primary system means that once the primary is over my ability to vote is gone since the only candidates I would ever consider are third party ones. Still, even if all my votes will be on the losing side, may as well vote anyway I guess, but it seems barely worth the effort.

The folks in the safe seats raise money to send to the DCCC/NRCC who then send it to competitive districts.

I think Driscoll is actually trying, because he can afford to try for no particular reason.
