Chadez endorses Billig

Lousie Chadez, who won about 20 percent of the vote in the four-way primary for the state House seat representing central Spokane, said this week she will endorse follow Democrat Andy Billig for the general election.

Billig finished second and will face the likely winner of the primary, Republican Dave White, in the November election. Here is a map showing where the Democrats in the race won their support.

Chadez’s decision isn’t a huge surprise. She and Billig shared many of the same positions during the campaign.

Meanwhile, third-place finisher, City Councilman Bob Apple, said Thursday that he has no plans to endorse either candidate.


Chadez said she knocked on 5,900 doors and was treated well at all but about a dozen. She said in the last week of the campaign she began noticing more opposition to Democrats and began to wonder if White might win.

At one home, Chadez said she was told: “If you’re a Democrat, get off my porch.”

“And I got right off. He was a big man, and I listened,” Chadez said.
