Ohhhhh.

Watch the primary vote. Check the number of R ballots counted against McGavick's total. I don't think supporters will like the number.

I personally know R's who left McGavick and their RINO legislator blank just for that reason.

Well, I don't know, then I guess they can hand the election to NeerDoWell. What good would that do?

WA politics seems to be a lot like the Northeast. A "true" (i.e., dyed-in-the-wool ideologue) conservative won't win the general election. As I recall a cycle or two ago they ran a "true conservative" for Governor, Carlson. What was it, like a 70-30 slaughter, or some such blowout.

They ran a "moderate-conservative" the last time and won (Rossi). The 'Rats had to "find" so-called "lost" ballots in King Co. nine separate times to finally install Fraudoire in the Governor's office. They ran a conservative (Nethercutt) against Osama Bin Murray and he got creamed by double digits. Distasteful as it might be, a "true conservative" simply won't pull more than 30-40 of the vote in a statewide race in WA.
