Burner’s off and running

We were startled today to get a request for an editorial board meeting with Darcy Burner, the Democratic challenger itching for a rematch next year with Eighth District U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert.

It’s way too early, we told Burner’s eager scheduler. Call us next year.

It’s not hard to see why Burner’s camp is pumped up. This week her only primary rival, state Sen. Rodney Tom, bowed out after seeing the flood of cash that an online fundraising blitz brought in for Burner. Burner says she’s already raised $400,000 for her campaign.

Reichert is still standing by the president’s war policy, which nearly did him in last year and will make him even more vulnerable in 2008. Reichert won last year with 51.5 percent of the vote.
