Publicola: More than Just Labor Leaders

Mayor Ed Murray?

I would vote for Ed Murray over all of the primary candidates, and the boy king Peter Steinbrueck. I wondered a month ago why Murray [thanks xteve] did not run.
Still wondering.

Last night, State Sen. Ed Murray (D-43) confirmed the theory we floated yesterday afternoon : Labor leaders are interested in having him run as a write-in candidate for mayor.

Murray said he’s open to  the idea and he’s meeting with supporters this morning to hear them out. He also said the contingent includes more than just labor leaders.

He also confirmed something else we’d heard: There are other names on the list. He did not know who.

Have a great day,
Mike Baker
