Tucker still not backed by own party

The Spokane County Republican Party announced over the weekend that it was endorsing Dino Rossi for U.S. Senate, Cathy McMorris Rodgers for Congress and Al French for county commissioner. Those aren't surprising moves given the results of the August primary.

But at least one GOP candidate who made it through to November remains without party backing: three-term incumbent Spokane County Prosecutor Steve Tucker. He faces Democrat Frank Malone in the general election.

County Party Chairwoman Cindy Zapotocky said the party hasn't considered whether to back Tucker because he hasn't requested an endorsement. The party backed Dave Stevens, who serves as the county party's vice chairman, in the primary. Zapotocky said Tucker could still request consideration in time for the party's board to take up the issue in October.
