    Until Rachel pointed it out recently, I hadn't realized Baumgartner was a solid anti-abortion'er like Ryan.

      this is looking to be the least close election for governor in Washington in a long time.  Gregoire had 2 nailbiters.  Too bad we didn't have a better candidate in WA-03.  We could've swept the state.

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936

      •  I was surprised to see an ad (5+ / 0-)

        by the R in CD-06, Bill Driscoll, featuring several self-identified Democrats, including young women, supporting him; Derek Kilmer, on the other hand, is running openly as a progressive in his spots.
        Suzan DelBene's ads blast Koster as a neanderthal on social issues.
        What I find puzzling is that Lands Commissioner Peter Goldmark, who's a shoo-in this year, is running TV ads. Ambition for higher office?

          If Goldmark's political ambitions are reviving, I think that may be a good thing. I thought he looked like a very intriguing Democrat when he ran for Congress in 2006. A potential leader (obviously) on environmental issues.

          Keep us posted if you spot more evidence?
