Yeah right. An old school Republican, who, after seeing his party taken over by religious fascists, switched parties to the one that best fit him in the 21st century. Sounds a lot like the 8th congressional district to me.

Ah yes, we all know how well Medina realtors who drive Mercedes connect to folks in Eastern Pierce County. Tom's name recognition also would've taken work, and he would've lost some women to Reichert.

And the only reason Tom became a Democrat is that he wanted to be a Senator.

I think Darcy Burner is a great candidate, but she really hasn't been doing much campaigning. She needs to start stepping it up!

Here's something a little curious. In the Insurance Commissioner race, the Spokane County Republican Party Chair filed... but as "States No Party Preference". I have no idea who the hell the Republican that's running is, but Fackler may make it to the general if he gets the word out.

He could be protesting the new primary system, which the parties hate with a passion.

Phillips vs. Sims for county executive next year? Sounds interesting.

Darcy Burner's house was completely destroyed in a fire this morning. Sad

Fortunately the entire family, including the puppy, made it out OK.

I was reading on HorsesAss about "Don't Let Seattle Steal This Election" signs with "Dino Rossi for Governor" on them in Eastern Washington.

Disgusting. Reminds me why I refuse to vote for the Repulsive Party.

That reminds me of the RNC's '06 MO "zip code ad."  It's easy to forget that regionalism can be a potent tool in elections.

Most campaigns try to avoid photos like this. But not Dino!


This thread has been very quiet, which is quite upsetting. Updates coming soon include:

- An engaged couple running against each other for State Legislature
- The Commissioner of Public Lands fondles an employees breast... and none of the papers cover it
- A top recruit of the House Republicans who thinks that global warming "may be a good thing... I like a warmer climate"
- Much, much more!

It's August with 19 days until the primary. What shall we expect in the next 3 weeks?

Also, which races will be one-party or involve a third party at the GE level in your opinion?

Only statewide office with any real potential of this is State Treasurer, and it won't happen.  WA-7 has been mentioned too, but none of the non-McDermotts are enough to block the reflexive GOP vote for Steve Baren.

Other than that, no Republican has filed for:

- District 1 (Pos. 1 & 2) [Bothell-S Snohomish County]
- District 19 (all seats) [Aberdeen-Kelso/Longview]
- District 22 (Pos. 1) [Olympia]
- District 24 (Senate) [Olympic Peninsula]
- District 28 (Pos. 2) [University Place-DuPont]
- District 32 (Pos. 2) [North Lake Washington-Woodway]
- District 34 (all seats) [West Seattle-Vashon]
- District 37 (Pos. 1) [East Seattle]
- District 38 (Pos. 2) [Tulalip-Everett]
- District 40 (Pos. 1) [San Juans-Bellingham]
- District 41 (Pos. 2) [Bellevue-Issaquah]
- District 43 (Pos. 1) [Central Seattle]
- District 49 (Senate) [Vancouver]

Total: 18

Assuming we're counting Rep. Brendan Williams filing as "Progressive Dem. Party" as Democrat.

And no Democrat filed for:

- District 7 (Pos. 2) [NE Wash.]
- District 9 (Senate) [SE Wash.]
- District 12 (all seats) [N-Central Wash.]
- District 13 (both seats) [Ellensburg-Moses Lake]
- District 14 (Senate) [Yakima West]
- District 16 (Senate) [Pasco-Walla Walla]

Total: 9

District 40 Pos. 2 will be Democrat vs. Green.

There are also several districts with both Democrats and Republicans who have filed that only members of one party are likely to make it to the general (the 8th, 14th, 20th, 35th and 36th all come to mind).

For it to happen in the Treasurer's race it would require a perfect storm of Democratic loyalists sticking to McIntire, Independent Democrats and Independents moving towards Sohn, and also very low Republican turnout. That actually sounds kind of like what's happening, but the chances are still very low. I'm a little more hopeful than Alcon though.

Allan's endorsed by Murphy...I see him getting more cross-over mostly by virtue of that.  Not that Republicans probably pay much attention to that race.

One of the GOP candidates for State Rep. in my district lists his occupation, unironically, as "Tetris player."

The other seat's candidate (who will advance) is running on an anti-communism platform...again.

Don't you just love the WA GOP?

Yea, Martin putting that in his voters pamphlet (which is where the vast majority of voters will make their decision) was a smart move. The only real way is if Democratic base and Independents split just right and, again, if there's really low Republican turnout.

And you're aware of the "interesting" situation involving the two running against Flannigan, right?

I also didn't know you were on a first name basis with the Republican nominee for State Treasurer Tongue

Oops, haha.  I have no idea where that came from.  Martin.

But, yeah, that's fun to follow.  Honestly the guy seems a little nutso, although I don't know him.  You probably might Wink

The guy's statement in the Voters' Guide was written solely to draw as many Republican votes away as possible. They figured he could do it by sounding as conservative as possible, but he just sort of came off sounding crazy. I would've gone about it in a different way, but whatever. He's perfectly sane (and liberal) in real life.

Smeall didn't even show up to the 27th LD endorsements meeting. She works at a Summer Camp on the Key Penninsula and thus has very little time to actually campaign (probably why she wasn't at the LD meeting as well). She's basically clueless.

I actually assumed he was crazy because of the letter he sent to Dale Woodard

So, the guy isn't actually a McCain supporter?  Now I'm really confused.

Yea, I don't quite understand why they were trying to knock Woodard out of the race. It seems like having him would split the Republican base and make it easier for Smeall to advance to the general.

But no, he's not a McCain supporter. He's listed as a Likely Democrat in our database.
