- One of three mailers currently going out in the 10th District attacking Haugen for her marriage vote.
What to do about this? State Senator Ed Murray (D-43), who helped move the marriage bill through the legislature, says:
When Senator Haugen announced that she was for marriage equality, she was the 25th vote that allowed us to take it to the floor and pass it. I think we should be there for her now. Obviously, doorbelling and donations will make a difference in this election. She was there for us. We should be there for her. It's a neck and neck race."
It's actually worse than neck and neck. Haugen came in behind her Republican challenger in the primary, and Murray says her defeat "would be a terrible loss."
