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.

Pelz decides on Chair

Former legislator, King County councilman, and failed Seattle city council candidate Dwight Pelz is officially pursuing the position of Chairman of the state Democratic Party. This means he is not jumping into the appointment race for the position he lost just a little over a month ago as speculated by some (guilty).

While i've never been a fan of Pelz, this is a smart move. He's widely seen as the favourite to replace Paul Berendt, and would be one of many applicants for the Council seat being vacated by Jim Compton. Looks like we will still be faced in a contest of an intelligent jerk versus an inept loser.
