Mood buoyant at 45th LD party in Kirkland

State rep­re­sen­ta­tive Roger Good­man just gave a short, jubi­lant vic­to­ry speech to a room­ful of his sup­port­ers. Good­man has a wide lead of over 12 per­cent­age points over his Repub­li­can oppo­nent Joel Hussey.

Good­man is proud to have ran “an hon­or­able” cam­paign ver­sus an oppo­nent who reached deep into his bag of dirty tricks. He cam­paigned every day in the neigh­bor­hoods, knock­ing on 11,400 doors. 

State rep­re­sen­ta­tive Lar­ry Springer also spoke. He joked that he was
annoyed that Good­man had received about as many votes as he had. In pri­or elec­tions, Springer won hand­i­ly while Good­man usu­al­ly squeaked by, in fact, it looked like a loss for Good­man on elec­tion night 2010. Not so this year, a relief for his hard-work­ing supporters.
