Wow I was just going to post something about this...

I really hate this system so far... Tongue

So by the end of the week should we know who all the candidates are?

Did the Republicans ever find a candidate for State Auditor? Or Insurance Commissioner? Hopefully not.

I would love to see the Republican fail to make it to the general in the 7th district.

I suspect someone will file eventually, even if it just a Brad Klippert/Hong Tran type. There is a Constitution Party candidate for State Auditor (hasn't filed yet though), so Sonntag won't be running unopposed.

Hahaha yeah, I know about the Constitution Party candidate. I would love to see a D vs. C race, which is why I really hope the Republicans don't run a candidate.

There's a chance that may happen in the 6th District even. There's a Democrat running to Norm Dicks' left who is generating a fair amount of interest amongst liberals in the party. Him doing well plus low Republican turnout could yield interesting results.

I kind of doubt it, but I guess we can hope.

The Treasurer race may also give us a double D general if we're lucky.

I highly doubt that. Martin is a good candidate and should easily get on the general ballot. I hope Sohn is the Democratic candidate. McIntire probably wouldn't do as well.

Yay, San Juans Purple heart

Isn't there likely going to be a D vs. D race in the 43rd district?

I remember in 2004 or 2006 when they had a primary for the seat that Jamie Pedersen eventually won... All six Democrats got more votes than the Republican. Beautiful!

Oh, I was probably thinking of the 36th district...

I didn't mean Pedersen was getting challenged, just using the primary he won as an example of how easy it would be to have no Republican on the general ballot in the 43rd.

I'm a little surprised no somewhat serious Republican has challenged Reed in the primary so far.

I'm disappointed with the Secretary of State race. If the Democrats could've found a qualified candidate it would have been an easy pick-up. Sad

Remember in 2000, the 7th district was D vs. G vs. L? I would've loved to see another Green run and stop the Republicans from getting on the general ballot. haha.

Doug Sutherland has won by small margins both times he's been elected, IIRC. I wonder if Goldmark has any chance of taking him out.

I support Burner of course, though she's kind of a disappointing candidate. In 2004 the Democrats run a radio show host and barely lose. In 2006 they run a..., hey I don't even know what Darcy Burner does, and she barely loses.

So sad to think that if the Democrats would just run a state legislator from the Eastside they would easily win this, yet they keep throwing the opportunity away and making it competitive. Sigh.

If Burner wins this year, I don't expect her to get re-elected too many times if you get my drift...

So many third party candidates! This would be really entertaining if we still had normal elections... Sad

Anyone know why the Constitution Party is back all of the sudden? And, as someone pointed out earlier, why the Libertarian Party is running so few candidates?

Anyway, glad to see the Democrats are actually running candidates in the 5th legislative district this time. Smiley

Randy Dorn was just endorsed by the Washington Democrats for Superintendent. Color me a little surprised.

Perhaps a little amusingly, I was talking to the closest thing that the Washington Democrats have to a party elder the other day and he said that Booth Gardner was seriously considering running for Superintendent.

Running for attorney general would've been more helpful...

Idiots.

The Washington State Democratic Party is lucky that the only other state party more retarded than them happens to be the Washington State Republican Party.

Oh, and Lautenburg will lose.

The Democratic Party just perplexes me with some of their candidates. Sometimes it seems like they want to lose.

Bah...I liked the Korean dude a lot more.  Looks like I'm voting for Martin.

McIntire isn't on the ballot yet! I'm still voting for Sohn in the primary.

Yea, Sohn could still make it. The voters of Washington have a long and wonderful record of telling the state parties to f**ck off.

I sure hope so.

Once Martin is elected, he has that seat for life. He's like McKenna--the type of Republican who, once established, will be able to win other statewide offices like Senator or Governor.

The Democrats have (or had...) an opportunity to stop him in the infancy of his political career. Now they may have to face his wrath in the future.

Martin is dangerous and must be destroyed now or never.

So Reichert is leading Burner 51-45 in a SUSA poll.

What a shocker! Ugh, I hate the Washington State Democratic Party. What is with their fetish for the worst possible candidates?

Rodney Tom wouldn't've been polling any better...

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.

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

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.

I'm thinking I'll vote Dorn for SPI... Not positive though.

I saw some Sohn signs today between Woodinville and Redmond. Smiley I also read that Sohn has raised the most money of any of the three candidates.

I'm almost definitely voting Fairhurst for Supreme Court... Not sure what to do about the other the SC race. Unsure
