Publicola reports that the GOP is focused on fundraising for East Side elections, including for the 41st district of which we’re a part.
“In the 41st (Mercer Island, New Castle, Issaquah, Renton) where liberal Democratic incumbent Randy Gordon is facing off against moderate NARAL-endorsed Stephen Litzow, it’s basically a dead heat in fundraising (which is actually good news for Gordon, who was previously far behind, but boasted to us that his funding was picking up. Litzow has raised slightly more overall, $44,000 to Gordon’s $42,000, but looking at cash on hand—Gordon is ahead by about $10,000—$31,000 to $22,0000.”
And in less mainstream political news, an organization called ResistNet is holding a rally in downtown Mercer Island on July 4th. Purpose: take back our nation, according to the website.
November will be interesting on both the national and the local level.
