Will Parker get a Democratic opponent?

Less than three days left in candidate filing week, state Rep. Kevin Parker, R-Spokane, still has no opponent.

Sixth Legislative District seats are highly competitive, but Democrats remain without a challenger to Parker, who unseated Rep. Don Barlow, D-Spokane, in 2008.

Democratic officials haven't offered any names of potential candidates in the race. Spokane County Democratic Party Chairwoman Amy Biviano said Wednesday that the party still hopes to "have a candidate" to challenge Parker.

"Until two days from now, we'll just have to wait and see," Biviano said. 

Parker has a sizeable campaign chest waiting for a potential opponent. He's raised $124,000, according to the state Public Disclosure Commission.
