Your Candidate Choices So FarMarch 31st, 2010 by Steven Gardner
Several names are missing from this list. The ones I include here are those who have either filed with the Federal Elections Commission or the state’s Public Disclosure Commission. Most notably absent are Republicans Rob McKenna and Dino Rossi, named often as suspected candidates for the U.S. Senate against Patty Murray. Brad Shannon at the Olympian offers party speculation that Rossi will run. On McKenna most speculate he’s aiming for a run at governor in 2012.
The examiner lists 17 possible challengers for Murray. Inslee has two Republican opponents.
In the state races I’m not yet listing Web sites, because I’m
not sure any are up to date or offer any real substance. If you do
a search yourself you might find more.
