The radical swing to the left represented by former wsrp chair Luke Esser’s new job as an SEIU lobbyist is also the visible migration of Rob McKenna.

He didn’t “craft” a message, choose three topics to hammer exclusively, or create “sound bites.” He campaigned as if public offices would be won or lost in America by an open exchange of ideas, debated openly in public, for the citizens, who would vote accordingly.
