Running Up the Score

Dunn's campaign signs have started popping up in the 9th council district of King County, so it looks like the Hutchison-Dunn slate is running up the score. Considering that Mr. Dunn's competitors cannot spend more than 5-K apiece on their campaigns, it would be more befitting for the immensely funded incumbent's campaign to wait until after the primary before flouting corporate-affiliated funding. Even though dismayed at this running up of the score, Mark is keeping the faith on the campaign trail, speaking to the masses and showcasing his populist idealism.

So it just confirms our previous speculation about the "Hutchison slate." Whoever becomes Hutchison's opponent in the county executive race through the August 18th primary (she's likely to win a plurality of that vote), will probably have to get around 40% of the vote in the 9th district in order to have a chance of winning the entire county. Mark must receive the votes of almost all of that 40% and draw 15% of the Hutchison voters into his column as well, while at the same time ["Commons"] possibly endorsing whoever Hutchison's competitor is.
