Dunn is Done?

It would appear so.

Early returns from Clark County show state Rep. Jim Dunn, R-Vancouver, running a distant third in the Top Two primary.

Democrat Tim Probst is leading with 49.5 percent of the vote. Republican Joseph James has 32 percent. Dunn has only 18.5 percent.

If this holds up, there will be no more “97 to Dunn” votes in the House.

Dunn was censored by his own party after some embarrassing remarks to a woman in a bar. But this past session, he ignored all the insults and regularly spoke on the floor of the House. And often, he was the only dissenting vote on bills passed by his colleagues.

This could mean Democrats pick up still another seat and pad their 63-35 majority in the House.
