Spokane County Deputy Prosecutor Dave Stevens should find out more about his employment status this morning when he meets with his boss, Prosecutor Steve Tucker.

Stevens announced this week that he will challenge Tucker in the August primary. Both are Republicans. On Thursday, Tucker said “all options are on the table” when asked if Stevens would be let go. Tucker also promised to follow the deputy prosecutors' union contract if he takes action against Stevens.

Today's meeting between the two is the first between the candidates since Stevens announced.
