County GOP backing Baker, White

The Spokanke County Republican Party endorsed Assessor Ralph Baker and legislative candidate Dave White over the weekend.

Ordinarily, one might think that the county party endorsing an elected GOP official, as Baker is, is something of a gimme. But not always this year. The County GOP is endorsing Dave Stevens over incumbent GOP Prosecutor Steve Tucker, for example.

For White the choice might have been pretty easy. He's running in the open seat in the 3rd Legislative District, a district that is trends strongly Democratic and has three Democratic candidates.
