That’s according to the Kitsap Sun’s Chris Henry, who writes:

Kitsap County Commissioner Josh Brown, whom outgoing Congressman Norm Dicks had on a short list of possible replacement candidates, announced Sunday he will not seek to represent the Sixth Congressional District. …

“I ran for commissioner six years ago to make a difference in the community I grew up in, and I think I’ve done that,” Brown said. “At the end of the day, my passion is really working at the local level and on regional issues.”

Brown’s decision leaves just one Democrat in the race to replace Dicks: state Sen. Derek Kilmer, who faces Republicans Jesse Young and Doug Cloud. Democratic Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland is also considering a run.
