Dale Foreman, onetime Washington State Republican Party chairman, endorses Democrat Maria Cantwell for U.S Senate
Dale Foreman isn’t just any Republican. He is a former Republican state legislator from the Wenatchee area, the former House Majority Leader, a onetime Republican candidate for governor who would have been nominated but for the seven-candidate mash-up that delivered the narrow plurality to Ellen Craswell in 1996.
He even served as the lawyer representing the party and Dino Rossi in the litigation challenging Chris Gregoire’s election in 2004.
So when he comes out for two-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, it’s a pretty big deal.
