Eye On Olympia

And another one in the nothing-but-Republicans race for a rural 7th District House seat…

Another very close race to the north, where it looks like Shelly Short and Sue Lani Madsen will face off in November.

The race in the rural northeastern Washington district is a rare five-way legislative battle with only Republicans in the ring. Three of them — Mike Davis, Peter Davenport, and Kelly White — did about equally, getting 14 to 17 percent each.

The numbers were equally similar among the apparent top two vote-getters, Short and Madsen. Each got about 26 percent, with Madsen leading tonight by about 60 votes.
