NW Presidential

More Northwest developments in the presidential run: Republican Mitt Romney will hold a fundraiser ($1,000 a plate, we’re told) at Boise on the 13th. Early indications are that, with half the state’s congressional delegation signed on, he will get plenty of support in the Gem state.

As in Washington the trend lines are looking good for Republican John McCain, who is picking up useful endorsements (former Senator Slade Gorton’s, for one) and Democrat Barack Obama (who held a massive rally at Bellevue last month).

In part prompting us to launch our 2008 NW Presidential supporters list – a list of prominent (or at least politically active) supporters in the region, by state. The list of Northwest supporters is not extensive but likely to grow.
