Recommendations for WA State Primary (Ballots due Tuesday, August 7th, 2012)

In the last few days, most WA voters received ballots in the mail.  As an active volunteer in Democratic politics, I wanted to share some compiled endorsement recommendations.  These mostly align with the 43rd District Democrats, King County Young Democrats, and Washington State Democrats where I serve as an officer.  If you have questions about why candidate X over candidate Y, if you notice a race that is missing, if you notice a typo, etc., please leave a comment or send an email.  Thanks–
