Pedaling around verdant northwest Aberdeen this morning, I spotted some green door hangers. When I got home, I found one on my door:
I look up and down the street at the other hangers and see a lot of literature dropped at doors where the residents can’t vote in Kolden’s closed Republican primary for the District 3 House.
I am pleased to see Kolden tout lifelong public service. That right there distinguishes him from his party’s Trumpist bent. I am also pleased to see him place K-12 education at the top of his “I support” list. He flies the flag (and his own background) with support for veterans (remind me, fellow voters: just how much of the Legislature’s exertions go toward veterans issues?), but he doesn’t mention guns, fetuses, or any of the other culture-war distractions we’ve come to expect from Republicans seeking the right-wing primary vote… which suggests the moderate Kolden will get killed by the right-wing tag team of Drew Dennert and Rep. Dan Kaiser.
But hey, Todd! Stop by again when I’m in! We’ll do an interview!
