That if you were reading The Seattle Times’ endorsement of Rob McKenna, and you came across this paragraph:
McKenna has an independent mind. He is willing to work with Democrats and he is willing on occasion to buck his party. He defended Washington’s top-two primary before the U.S. Supreme Court, despite pressure from his own party seeking to overturn it. And he won.
You might reasonably say to yourself that they got the bucking his own party bit out of the way, so it’s time for an example of him working with Democrats. The next paragraph will surely mention the vast amounts of working with Democrats he did.
It’s just an awkward transition to complaining that Democrats have mentioned that he’s a Republican. OK then.
