I’m guessing there are a lot of folks who had expected to support Larry Phillips, who now don’t know what they’re going to do.
Larry is a good, reliable progressive who’s done a good, reliable job letting us know how good and reliable he is. I don’t think there’s a single, substantive issue on which we disagree.
Dow’s pretty progressive too, I think, but he’s less of a politician than Larry, so I’m not quite as sure. In fact, a lot of Dow’s appeal comes from the fact that he comes across as less of your typical politician and more of an ordinary guy. (If only he hadn’t declared for the office, he’d have the Seattle Times endorsement all sewn up.)
Me… I don’t know who I’m going to support, and there are still more candidates to come. (Rep. Ross Hunter has gotten his name in the news a lot recently. Hmm.) It’s gonna be an interesting race.
