Spokane County GOP chairman files for office…as “no party preference”

Spokane businessman Curt Fackler filed last night to run again for Insurance Commissioner. As several other candidates around the state have done, Fackler listed no party preference.

But Fackler is the Spokane County GOP chairman.

Why not run as a Republican?

“I feel that insurance is a nonpartisan issue,” he said. “And on a statewide basis, I feel that having an R after your name isn’t that advantageous. I’m not denying that I’m a Republican.”

Three people have filed for the seat: Democratic incumbent Mike Kreidler and Republican challenger John R. Adams.
