Inquiring minds want to know: Which Reeves is that?

There's a Kristine' Reeves running for the state House of Representatives in Western Washington's 30th District. 

Wait a minute, someone wrote in an email. Wasn't there a Kristine' Reeves who used to be the chairwoman of the Spokane Democratic Party? Are they the same person?

Yes. Reeves was chairwoman of the party in 2008. She later went to work for the U.S. Senate on veterans issues, the Association of Defense Communities and later served as the executive director of the Washington Military Alliance, which Gov. Jay Inslee put together as a way fight off any reduction in military bases in the state.

She's running in a district that includes southern portions of King County and northern portions of Pierce County.
