The Political Desk: Attorney General

OK, it is a week to go before the ballots are due, and I haven't even gotten to the judges. I'm starting to double-shot these.

This one's easy, though. Two candidates, no Republicans, both will go onto the general election regardless of the results.

Bob Ferguson is the Democratic incumbent. He's done a good job. He's not being investigated by the Feds. I know, high praise, but after the State Auditor you've got to double-check. Yeah, let's keep him.

Joshua B. Trumbull is the Libertarian. He not only has no political experience, he has "Abolutely no political experience". He is, however, a lawyer, but spends most of his space talking about the dangers of the two party system. And here's a clue for small party candidates - we want to know about you, not your party. How your party thinks should come out of your own experiences and opinions.

We'll see these guys again, but in the meantime, Bob Ferguson. 

More later,
