The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

Reichert has company

It appears two Democrats have entered the race to challenge freshman Rep. Dave Reichert (R-Bellevue). According to, ex-Microsoft exec. Darcy Burner and attorney Randy Gordon are challenging him and have put up websites (or at least skeletons of such). One must wonder if state Rep. Ross Hunter, who appeared to be the candidate the DCCC were courting, might be hesitant to enter into a primary challenge. The same goes for former state Rep. Laura Ruderman, another possible Reichert foe, who was the anointed candidate for secretary of state in 2004 before losing to popular moderate Sam Reed. For more information on these newly-minted candidates, visit their websites below. Props must be given to candidate Burner for the Tory-like banner, as well.
