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.

Olde tyme legislator to run for OSPI

According to the News Tribune, former state Rep. Randy Dorn will soon be announcing a run for superintendent of public instruction. He was formerly a high school principal and currently heads the Public School Employees of Washington, the second largest teachers' union in the state.

Dorn served the 2nd legislative district from his 1987 appointment to his 1994 loss to Republican Scott Smith. Since the 1994 GOP landslide, only Marilyn Rasmussen has been able to keep a Democratic foothold in the rural Pierce County district.

Me thinks you should update your election predictions given Rep. Geoff Simpson's recent arrest.

Heh, I'm not that fast. I won't be shedding any tears, though. Simpson always struck me as an arrogant blowhard and the fact that his voting record was every bit as left as what you'd expect from a Seattle Democrat has meant I've always thought the 47th could do a lot better.
