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.

Dunn pulls ahead in 17th

Via The Columbian via a heads-up from Jack Burkman, incumbent Rep. Jim Dunn [R] has taken a small lead over surprise Democratic challenger Pat Campbell. Campbell had held a small lead up until now, and still shows a lead at the Secretary of State website, though the article cites numbers with about 5,000 more votes counted than the latest update with the Secretary of State. Dunn is a perennially-endangered legislator and has lost reelection in the past. He was likely to lose this year, as far as I had predicted, to Mr. Burkman before Campbell won the Democratic primary as a result of Republican crossovers. If Dunn does indeed hold on as the article predicts, I hope to see him defeated in 2008 after a history of being an ineffective legislator and having a very conservative voting record.
