House Democratic Tally Inching Up

Dr. Kim Schrier, the candidate I supported for Washington’s 8th district even though I don’t live in that part of Washington state, won her race. I’m thrilled — this has been a long time Republican seat. I’m grateful that good people still want to run, and hold office, even in our current poisonous political environment.

She will join other strong women representing Washington state: Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, Representatives Pramilla Jayapal and Susan DelBene.

Rays of light, every one.

  1. for Phyllis: I’m elated that the race for Washington’s 8th district has now been called for Dr. Kim Schrier. I supported her even though I’m not in that district. That had long been a Republican district. Kim worked her tail off to win the seat, and I’m glad her efforts were rewarded. She’s Jewish, and one of the candidates against whom anti-Semitic ads were run — picture of her greedily holding fistfuls of cash. Really ugly. Glad it didn’t work.
