Politics 32nd District …. Democrats?

The rambunctious and iconoclastic 32nd District Democrats (Shoreline, Edmonds, Woodway, Lake Forest Park) seem to have shored up their iconoclastic cred.
I’ve got several calls out to confirm this with the folks from the 32nd, but last Friday, June 15, they reportedly endorsed Thom McCann in the crowded Port Commissioner race. (This is the race for incumbent Bob Edwards seat, also starring solid Democrat Gael Tarleton and long shoreman and Burien City Council Democrat Jack Block, Jr.)
Endorsing McCann would be a weird move given that McCann’s not a Democrat. (Neither is Edwards.) At least that’s what McCann told the 46th District Democrats at their May 19 candidate forum according to the official notes from that meeting. (I don’t know if the question was asked at the 32nd.)
McCann has also contributed $100 to GOP KC Council Member Reagan Dunn and $50 to conservative candidate Bruce Harrell in this year’s city council race to fill Peter Steinbrueck’s seat. McCann has also donated $100 to liberal KC Council Member Dow Constantine.
McCann is for eliminating the Port tax.
