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.

AWB endorses...

I missed it until now, but the Association of Washington Business issued some preliminary endorsements for legislative incumbents the day after they endorsed Steve Johnson and Gerry Alexander for the Supreme Court. The list is linked above, with partisan discrepancies listed below:

Endorsed Democrats:
-Sen. Tim Sheldon

Not-endorsed Republicans:
-Rep. Tom Campbell
-Rep. Shirley Hankins
-Rep. Fred Jarrett

It is notable to point out that in 2004's early incumbent endorsements AWB endorsed no Democrats, though Tim Sheldon hardly qualifies as one these days. Once matchups are more apparent, AWB is generally more generous with their endorsements, as evidenced by 2004's list where they endorsed many Democratic incumbents.
