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.

Senator Brown to lead Democrats next session

Senator Lisa Brown [D-Spokane] has been reelected as the chamber's Democratic leader, along with Senator Harriet Spanel [D-Bellingham] as Democratic Caucus Chair and Senator Tracey Eide [D-Federal Way] as Democratic Floor Leader. No word yet if Senator Debbie Regala [D-Tacoma] will stay on as Democratic Whip, or what the drastically-reduced Republican Caucus leadership will look like. I will say this, while I'm well aware that this was going to be a bad Senate cycle for the Republicans with or without the wave, if they keep Mike Hewitt as their leader next session then they clearly haven't learned their electoral lesson. Change it up, guys.

I haven't heard, though I seem to recall them meeting sometime in December in previous years.
