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.

Hobbs files for Senate seat

Democrat Steve Hobbs, most recently a candidate for Snohomish County Council last year, has filed for the state Senate seat currently held by Republican Dave Schmidt. This district, already with a slight Democratic lean, should prove to hold one of the closest and most entertaining legislative matchups this November. Schmidt, a moderate conservative who jumps on fiscal issues and not social issues (in other words, the oft-mentioned Dixiecrat), ought to be concerned about the entry of Hobbs into this race.
