On the Web: Politico thinks McMorris Rodgers in line to move up

Washington state politicians are getting some ink in other publications. Politico has a long piece today assessing Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers' prospects of moving up in House GOP hierarchy.

It mentions she's been travelling around to other congressional districts to help Republicans campaign...something her Democratic opponent Rich Cowan has criticized.

Thursday he said the story just confirms his criticism: "Her actions show she spends much of her time being a professional fundraiser for the Republican Party, not our representative. It’s clear she is everywhere in the country but here, pushing her partisan political agenda instead of helping Eastern Washington.”
