Not so whacked out that Seattle-ites want another Kshama Sawant in office
State House Speaker Frank Chopp was the Legislature’s biggest winner
Tuesday night, as the veteran Seattle housing activist blew away his
43rd District foe Jess Spear, a candidate from the Socialist Alternative

primary election. Challenger Spear, a climate researcher not long in
the district, trailed with just 19.06 percent of the vote. Spear,
