    I think this would be a little more interesting if we could compare, side-by-side, Issaquah’s vote to the actual total statewide percentage, or at least have a link to the state results.

    I would like to see the rest of the district broken down. Slick Slade made it so Reichert can not be replaced and doesn’t have to represent Issaquah and won’t have to campaign on his lackluster non thinking non productive terms in the House that would be an interesting list of numbers. I would like to thank the Press for giving us these comparisons. Some are very interesting and a couple are downright scary.
