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.

20th LD, Richard DeBolt [R]
26th LD, Larry Seaquist [D]

30th LD, Skip Priest [R]*

*Let me add that I think this largely underscores what an effective legislator Skip Priest has been. His margin of victory has grown with each election, even as the Democratic legislators in the 30th won landslides. In order to accomplish a 15-point victory this year, he had to count on the support of a vast majority of Independents and a sizable minority of Democrats, being, from what I've seen, the only swing district Republican incumbent whose result ran completely contrary to this year's norm.
