Seattle Times: State Sen. Maralyn Chase draws a serious challenger — fellow Democrat Jesse Salomon

Jesse Salomon
From our news partner, The Seattle Times:

State Sen. Maralyn Chase of Edmonds has always cut her own path as a Democrat. She’s made a sometimes-solitary push for an income tax, opposed Sound Transit expansion championed by her colleagues, and crossed the aisle to support controversial former GOP state Sen. Pam Roach. 
Campaigning for her third Senate term, Chase faces a fellow Democrat in a race focused on both style and policy. 
Chase’s opponent, Shoreline Deputy Mayor Jesse Salomon, narrowly beat her in the August primary, and Salomon has been endorsed by both of the district’s Democratic representatives as well as King County Executive Dow Constantine and the mayors of Shoreline, Edmonds, Lynnwood and Woodway.

Several of those officials say Chase has insulted them, doesn’t listen to their concerns, or opposes policies preferred by other Democrats.

32nd District voters value Sen Chase’ Independent voice. “She cuts her own path” is actually appealing to a huge number of Voters in the 32nd. Our people do NOT necessarily want a Senator to slavishly follow the establishment, either in Olympia or locally!

Also, you forgot to mention the amazing array of endorsements Maralyn has collected.LC Labor Council, Sierra Club, Washington Conservation Voters, AG Bob Ferguson, Rep Pramilla Jayapal, and hundreds of other leaders from throughout the State!
