Inslee endorses challenger to Democratic incumbent in 5th LD


Over the weekend, Jay Inslee took the unusual step of publicly endorsing a Democ­ratic challenger to a Democ­ratic incum­bent senator.

In the 5th LD, incum­bent Mark Mullett faces a general election challenge from his left from Ingrid Anderson.

Mullet has been among the more moderate Democ­rats in the legis­la­ture over the last four years. He lists the support of a range of state and local elected officials on his site.

Anderson is a nurse and a leader in the Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion. She has won the strong backing of organi­za­tions across the full spectrum of the labor community.
