Reierson files for prosecutor

And then there were four...Spokane County prosecutor candidates, that is.

Jim Reierson joined the race for county prosecutor today, saying he prefers "The Law and Order Party." (Who knew the hit TV show had its own political party?)

Reierson ran for the job four years ago as a Democrat, and ran twice for Spokane County District judge, which is a nonpartisan position.
