Beginnings and endings

You always know, when the mandatory candidate voice comes on an ad right at the beginning, that it'll be harsh. And this one, by Senator Patty Murray doing a "comparative" against Republican Dino Rossi, is.

Except that so is this other one, in which Dino Rossi placed his audio mark at the end. The thinking would be interesting to know. In any event, both give you a sense of the state of play in the race right now. Surely at least, fairly close (or they wouldn't both be running negatives).

The election is over

The 2009 election that is, for one of the seats on the Coeur d'Alene city council.

It was close, to be sure. Incumbent Mike Kennedy has led over the last year over challenger Jim Brannon by fewer votes than most of us have fingers. For a long stretch during the hearings, recounts, court actions and so on, Kennedy led by about five. After all was done, he won by three.

Just another reminder, as we head into another voting season, that your vote counts.
