Eye On Olympia

GOP, in sotto voce

I blogged this morning about Spokane GOP chairman Curt Fackler’s decision to list no party in his run for state insurance commissioner.

Here’s another example of a Republican candidate apparently seeking a little distance from the brand: Mercer Island public-releations entrepreneur Valerie Chan filed to challenge Republican-turned-Democrat Fred Jarrett for a state Senate seat. The swing district includes Mercer Island and parts of Renton and Bellevue.

It’s only 16 paragraphs into Chan’s 17-paragraph press release that we learn that she’s a Republican.

And even that comes with Chan’s dislaimer that “finding practical solutions are (sic) more important than political parties.”

And here’s more background on the political nature of the district from the TNT’s Joe Turner.

(Sotto voce explainer.)
