Sherman Sweeps the Enviro-Endorsements

Posted by on June 29 at 13:35 PM

King County Deputy Prosecutor Bill Sherman has now been endorsed by both of the big environmental groups that will be weighing in on the hot state house race in Seattle’s 43rd District. Sherman got the nod from the Sierra Club last week and today received the sole endorsement of the Washington Conservation Voters.

Sounding pleased, he had this to say when he called me with the news:

“I see this as an important step in the campaign, to have the environmental community unified behind one candidate.”

There are six liberal candidates in this race, all of them ideologically indistinguishable for the most part. Becoming the enviro-darling should help Sherman stand out from the pack, especially in the tree-hugging 43rd.

Wow - that's huge. There's a big chunk of voters in the 43rd who probably don't look at much else besides these endorsements.

huzzah! Now the race is really fasci......zzzzzzzzzz......

Nothing rallies the Democratic base quite like dividing them in the primary races!

You could have all six Democrats in the general election getting an equal number of votes, and they'd still beat a Republican candidate in that district. The 43rd bleeds indigo.
