And Dunn picks up a GOP opponent..

State Rep. Jim Dunn, R-Vancouver, known for his coiffure, girth and Louisiana-drawl-inflected floor speeches, has a Republican challenger in the primary.

Vancouver's Joseph James, a dog trainer, clothing company owner, and owner of "Dog Adventure Camp" is challenging Dunn. (The website just went down as I was typing this; presumably it's being updated.)

Dunn has drawn fire from both sides of the aisle over alleged sexist remarks to a staffer. The incident got him yanked from all his committee assignments, a pretty severe slap for a lawmaker.

Also vying for the seat, Vancouver Democrat Tim Probst.
