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.

13th district update, complete with a round of Green Rivers

Just as its neighbour to the southwest, the vast expanse of the 13th legislative district is having a rare show of an exciting campaign season. In case you don't know where the 13th is, it's the bulk of what you drive through by taking I-90 between Spokane and Seattle. If you ever must venture into the district, I highly recommend hitting this kickass little restaurant/bakery in Cle Elum called Cottage Café. Their butterhorns are well worth dealing with a Holmquist sign every two feet, plus the Chevron on the main drag has Green Rivers. But I digress.

With Rep. Janéa Holmquist [R-Moses Lake] running for the Senate, three Republicans have so far announced runs for her old House seat. The first to announce (and file) is Max Golladay, a former Kittitas County commissioner who was defeated in the GOP primary in a run for his third term. The other candidates, according to Kittitas County GOP Chair Matt Manweller, are Moses Lake businessman Len Seltz and Grant County Auditor Ken Koons. I have yet to hear of any Democrats mulling runs for the seat, though they are sending Lisa Bowen to her death against Holmquist for the Senate seat.
