“The state of Washington is democratic. If you pay a $1,700 filing fee, you can run for US Senate. The state gives you half a page in the Voter’s Pamphlet, which it mails to every voter. You can have your picture, your name, your email and webpage addresses on that page, along with your statement to the world. And you can say just about anything you want. This year there are 18 candidates. Set aside the two who will make it to the November ballot: Patty Murray, 71, the incumbent Democrat, who will win, and Tiffany Smiley, 38, the sacrificial Republican. The fun in the primary election is the candidates who will lose.” (07/30/22)
