Baumgartner cancels potluck

OLYMPIA -- Sen. Mike Baumgartner's annual Flag Day Potluck is the latest casualty of the Legislature's inability to get a budget. 

The potluck, scheduled for Friday at Comstock Park, was cancelled because Baumgartner can't attend. He's in Olympia with the other legislators (most of them anyway) with the second special session which began Wednesday.

Baumgartner said the food will go to the Union Gospel Mission.
