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.

Jay Inslee will earn less than 100% of reelection votes

David Postman reported yesterday that the GOP has found a candidate to challenge 1st Congressional district Democrat Jay Inslee. Larry Ishmael, a member of the Issaquah School Board and purported ally of Dino Rossi, intends to rent an apartment in Redmond or Kirkland for the campaign -- since he lives in Dave Reichert's 8th district. Now, I do not think Jay Inslee is unbeatable (I thought Jane Hague would have posed a strong threat had she stayed in the 2004 race), but the GOP could not even find somebody who lives in the district? Safe Inslee.
