In Brief - October 7th, 2006

Here is today's quick news digest, 8th District edition:
  • The Cook Political Report, which bills itself as "the insider's choice for election analysis" (because they're establishment) has upgraded Washington's 8th District to "Toss Up" from "Leans Republican", something we neglected to mention yesterday. No doubt the three recent polls which show Darcy in a tight heat against Dave Reichert had an impact on their decision.
  • CQPolitics notes that the NRCC reported spending $7.8 million just yesterday for an ongoing “independent expenditure” campaign. $23,781 of those funds were spent in Washington's 8th District on direct mailings attacking Darcy Burner.
  • Darcy Burner will be on the Seattle Times' website for a live Q&A this Wednesday morning at 11 AM to answer questions from voters. You can submit your question in advance here, if you're so inclined. Dave Reichert will be appearing the following Monday, (October 16th) for another live Q&A.
  • A second reminder that Darcy Burner and Dave Reichert will debate this Tuesday evening at the Meydenbauer Center in downtown Bellevue at 6:30 PM. Both will respond to questions from a panel of Seattle Times editorial writers and reporters (the Times is sponsoring the debate). Darcy could use all the support she can get, so if you can spare a few hours, be sure to go. Admission is free and downtown Bellevue is well served by Metro and Sound Transit. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
