Politics More Seattle Times Faulty Logic

This is like shooting fish in a barrel.
So, today, when I pressed Seattle Times editorial page editor James Vesely to list some issues (any issues) that his board is in agreement with McGavick on as opposed to Cantwell…he said that McGavick is better on dam policy in Eastern Washington. That is, McGavick wouldn’t breach the dams…the assumption, I guess, being that Cantwell would?
But in today’s Seattle Times I find this report:
Campaigning in Eastern Washington, Republican Mike McGavick, a former insurance executive, spoke at a viewpoint overlooking Ice Harbor Dam near the Tri-Cities.
He declared he would never allow breaching of the Snake River dams and asked: “Who is the senator going to side with, the people of Eastern Washington who depend on hydropower or environmental activists who hide behind antiquated and ineffective federal laws like the Endangered Species Act?”
Cantwell has said she does not support breaching the dams.
