Re-elect, and shift

There was a contest yesterday among Washington state Democrats for the position of state chair. More or less a contest, anyway.

The incumbent (since 2006), Dwight Pelz, was re-elected 145-14 over Natalie McClendon, who chairs the Whatcom County Democrats.

Recall that only a short time ago, Washington Republicans ousted their chair, Luke Esser, who served during a similar time span, by a vote of about two to one (in favor of talk show host Kirby Wilbur), though there was little by way of suggesting that Esser had done a bad job.

Seems to reflect a difference in attitude.
