At the Patty Murray “kick-off” here in Spokane she was introduced by Bret Blankenship. He modestly identified himself as an Eastern Washington farmer who, “Took off my overalls and put on a suite to introduce my friend, Patty Murray”. He went on to extol her virtues and how she had helped him in the past and is still willing to help him today.
He was far too modest. Bret Blankenship is president of the Washington Association of Wheat Growers (WAWG), the second most powerful lobby in the state and decidedly right of center. Dino Rossi would have killed for that introduction for his campaign. You have to look no further for assurance that Patty Murray has to be the big favorite in her race for the senate.
