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.

Ferguson rolling on to victory

You can tell Carolyn Edmonds is screwed when the Seattle PI fails to endorse her. Bob Ferguson won the sole endorsement of the PI today, coupled with the endorsement of Seattle Weekly, another newspaper that one would expect to go with the more liberal and partisan choice in Edmonds. Beyond snatching up two surprise endorsements, Ferguson also has achieved the support of grassroots Democrats, winning the support of several Democratic legislative organizations, King County Democrats, and the Washington State Democrats. Edmonds has turned to desperation in some late attack ads that have gone over like a lead balloon and only flown back in her face in the form of negative press. All signs appear to be pointing to a Ferguson victory in September 20th's Democratic primary, which is good for both King County and the state as whole.
