GOP musical chairs continues…

Republicans in the state House of Representatives have elected Rep. Richard DeBolt, a Republican from the rural Western Washington town of Chehalis, as the top GOP lawmaker in the House.
DeBolt will take the reins from Rep. Cathy McMorris, R-Colville, who's giving up the leadership position -- but not her state lawmaker seat -- in order to devote more time to her run for Congress. She's one of several Republicans gunning for the seat being vacated by Congressman George Nethercutt.

Short takes and breaking news from the Washington Legislature and the state capital.
