Washington is a top two primary state and the last poll I saw, over a month ago, had Murray trailing both Republicans. If she loses in the primary I think that bodes well for November, if she places number two we are at the status quo and if she takes the number one spot I think it indicates November will be a bloodmatch. That’s my tea leave reading for the day.
(BTW with Mr. X and I have decided to revisit the marriage question in December. The stay yesterday knocked him back a little – In his words “If the 9th Circuit isn’t going to back him [the judge who issued the ruling] no one will.”)
