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.

Bergeson out?

Call it a hunch. The article linked above spells out how she's lost support of some key supporters and seems to be tiring of her position and constant squabbles with the WEA. She still hasn't filed with the PDC and now that Mike Murphy has announced his retirement as treasurer she's the only incumbent out there who has yet to at least file paperwork for 2008. While I suspect she could probably win another term despite that people seem to be bailing on her, she isn't acting like someone who wants to be a candidate.

In the event of an open seat, outside the chance that Dave Quall runs for the position I have a hard time seeing her replacement being as moderate and independent-minded. With liberal Democrats out for blood on the WASL, a return to a Billingsesque OSPI seems likely.
