The results of the Washington primary election on Tuesday – or rather, ending on Tuesday – surprised new one particularly. The state’s top-rank race, the Senate contest between Democratic incumbent Patty Murray and Republican Dino Rossi, materialized about as pundits had figured, and the Tea Party-backed candidates did not get far. Elsewhere, prospective close U.S. House races were set up in the 2nd and 3rd districts, and Democrats were hard-pressed in a number of legislative contests.
More went on around the region as well. Gubernatorial debates were a hot topic of discussion in Idaho (where the first of the general election season was held in Idaho Falls) and Oregon (where negotiations over which debates will be held, or participated in, continued). Economic indicators remained mixed at best.
As a reminder: We’re now publishing weekly editions of the Public Affairs Digests – for Idaho, Washington and Oregon – moving from a monthly to a weekly rundown of what’s happening. And we’re taking it all-electronic: The print edition will be moving to e-mail.
That means we can include more information, and get it out a lot faster: The weekly Digests will be in your in-box first thing Monday morning. If you subscribe, of course: That’s $59 a year, for 50 issues and the yearbook. Yes, including the yearbook. The Idaho Yearbook, which we published for years up to 2002, will return early in 2011 – in printed book form – and Digest subscribers get it for free with their subscription. And the Oregon and Washington yearbooks will be coming out at the same time.
If you’d like to take a look at one of the new weekly Digests, here’s a link to the Idaho edition, to the Oregon edition and to the Washington edition. If you’d like to subscribe, here are the links (through to PayPal) for Idaho, for Oregon and for Washington.Share on Facebook
