A Very Close Lieutenant Governor Election

I'm guessing that this year's statewide primary will have about as many votes for Lieutenant Governor as the primary in 2008, which had about 1,350,000 voters; and with reports of a relatively low rate of return of ballots thus far, maybe a good chunk lower. Unfortunately, turnouts (which are mail-ins, now) are not particularly large in primaries, nor generally.  With the state constitutional offices primary earlier than most in recent history in Washington, the aforementioned total of votes will probably not differ much this year.  Keeping that number in mind, I think I can qualify for the General Election with roughly 300,000 votes, as I think Owen, Finkbeiner and Anderson will have about that many, too.  The other 100,000 or so votes will be split by Deal and Sumner, IV.  In the '08 Primary, Owen had about 700,000 votes.  I don't believe he will have nearly that many this year.  As Finkbeiner, with support from some Democrats, will chip away about 100 thousand votes from that total.  The other five candidates, including myself, will chip away another 300 thousand more, leaving Owen with about 300 thousand votes.

If my calculations are right, this election will be close in deciding the Top 2 and turn on each of the supporters of the 4 leading candidates (see next-to-previous post, "A 4 Man Race") and their influence on potential undecided voters.  This is why I am asking my supporters who are reading this post to network on my behalf through social media, such as Twitter, and through mentioning my candidacy to your family, friends and acquaintances in the next few days.
Thank you!

If possible, please, consider contributing to campaign: make selections of how you want to donate, or send check or money order to Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor Comm., P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you! Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2011 and to call out names. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
