For state Sen. Marilyn Rasmussen’s seat: challenger Kelly Mainard, R
For House Position 1: two Democrats – Ray Harper and Chuck Collins against incumbent Republican Rep. Jim McCune
For House Position 2: Incumbent Rep. Tom Campbell, R
Here’s our editorial:
Voters in the 2nd Legislative District don’t want for choices this year.
All three incumbents are facing challengers this year. That’s encouraging. The district, which encompasses Southeast Pierce County and parts of Thurston County and includes Spanaway, Orting, Eatonville and Yelm, could benefit from some fresh blood.
It is telling that someone like state Sen. Marilyn Rasmussen, a 22-year Democratic veteran of the Legislature, has attracted two strong Republican opponents.
