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.

Nixon tries for old seat

According to Chris Mulick, former Rep. Toby Nixon [R-Kirkland] will be running for the House seat he abandoned last cycle to run unsuccessfully for the 45th district Senate seat. He will likely face freshman Democrat Roger Goodman, who won the open seat contest in Nixon's absence.

While I think the race will at least initially lean Goodman's direction, I'm pleased to see Nixon wants back in the legislature. I thought he was a reasonable, libertarianish Republican who is the type the party needs to run on the Eastside now that they've lost virtually all of it to the Democrats.
