Home builders backing mostly GOP

The Spokane Home Builders Association released its list of candidate endorsements this week, and they're going mostly Republican.

Mike Baumgartner and Cathy McMorris Rodgers for Congress

Republicans for most statewide executive office, except for Democrat Jim McIntire for state treasurer, who has no Republican opponent.

Republicans in most Spokane-area legislative races except for Democrat Bob Apple, the former city councilman, in that crowded 3rd District House race. No endorsement in the other 3rd House race. They went for Jeff Holy for the open House seat in the 6th District, which has two other Republicans looking to replace John Ahern.

Incumbent Todd Mielke in the District 1 Spokane County commissioner race. Silent on the more hotly contested commissioner race, which features two Republicans, Shelly O'Quinn and County Treasurer Rob Chase.
