GOP is one seat away from controlling the State Legislature

In a great victory for the people of Washington, tonight's election results show that Republican State House candidate Teri Hickel wins!  

In the 30th LD (Federal Way), ballots from King County and Pierce County give Hickel a lead of 54% to 46% over her WEA funded Democrat opponent.  Hickel's victory brings the GOP within one seat of controlling the entire legislature!

“We are in such a crisis that we have to ask for things that are absolutely politically infeasible,”

This is an incredible article even by Leader standards.  



Why is the Washington State Government going to shut down next week?
It's simple, the House Democrats want the Senate Republicans to agree to Inslee's income tax proposal before the House votes on it. The Democrats are afraid to vote for their own tax, but they think their brinkmanship will force the GOP to vote for it and they are willing to shut down the state.

If the Democrats want to fight on this hill, they need to vote out their budget and taxes.  They want to negotiate on taxes they won't vote for.

In a rare admission from a Seattle Times columnist, Danny Westneat wrote today:

"You can see it on their faces. Maybe it’s so clear because it’s so unusual in our blue state: Republicans are winning the state legislative session.  If you watch the few news conferences and hearings still being held in a mostly empty Capitol in Olympia, it’s obvious the Republicans know it’s all going their way. They’re just waiting around now for the Democrats to cave….

"But part of it is a more moderate GOP approach that deserves a lot of credit.  The Democrats are more generous in their budget to teachers and schools. But not by much. If the Senate GOP budget is adopted as-is it would still be the largest boost in K-12 schools funding in decades.  And on higher education, the Republicans blew the Democrats out of the water….

"Republicans stayed focused on mainstream stuff like education and the budget….

"But mostly the political year adds up like this: Bold Republicans plus weak Democrats times a strong economy equals a red budget in a blue state."
