    a GOPer, passed away?  Are we playing real hard for that as it would not only secure the majority, it would end the coalition.

    •  Carrell's replacement named quickly (1+ / 0-)

      Representative Steve O'Ban (R-28) is now Senator Steve O'Ban (R-28). A replacement in the House hasn't yet been named, but it will be a Republican, of course.

      The 28th is another swing district, also in the Tacoma/Pierce County area. Tami Green is a strong progressive, but the other two seats are Republican. If we can find a strong candidate against O'Ban in the upcoming special election this fall, it's a possible takeaway.

      Sidenote: I'd like to take a wider look at WA Legislative District races, but it's more of a hope than a promise.

      Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. -- K.Marx A.Lincoln
