State Republicans after their convention and the primary.
Community Events, May 2016
Here we go round the political bush. This is the week candidates sign on the line to run for various elected offices that do the day-to-day work of governing.
For very different reasons, Donald Trump and Randy Dorn are poised to alter the dynamics of this year's race for governor in Washington. Trump's effect would derive from his position as the Republican Party's presumptive nominee for president and the cascading consequences of his words and actions.
Donald Trump's unpopularity numbers hover around 60 percent. Hillary Clinton's are between 50 and 55 percent. How did we get into a situation where most voters will be required to elect the least unpopular candidate this November? The answer lies in history and human nature.
The goal of Washington's elections community is civic engagement of our electorate. We work to make voting and participating in the political process accessible, accurate and secure. It has been sad to hear the stories of so many caucus participants who say "never again" after recently enduring caucuses that lasted until after midnight in some cases.
