The King County Democrats have just issued a brief press release, disavowing themselves of HA regular Richard Pope.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 15, 2007
The King County Democrats would like to go on record opposing the candidacy of a former Republican PCO who filed as a Democrat in the King County Council District 6 race. He is not a Democrat and we will not embrace him as such. In fact, he denied the Democratic Party the right to do a party file during the week of June 11 – 15, 2007 and we had a candidate ready to file.
We do have a write-in candidate for King County Council District 6 – BRAD LARSSEN, 45th LD Democrats Vice Chair and an elected Democratic PCO in KIR 45-2923. Brad is a committed, dedicated Democrat and will launch a write-in campaign early next week.
BRAD LARSSEN, DEMOCRAT
For King County Council District 6

A little advice to Susie. You may not consider Richard a Democrat, but for the moment at least, Richard does. So that means you better be awfully careful with your PDC filings this season.
As for the race itself, all I’ll commit to at the moment is to support whoever ultimately wins the Democratic nomination.
