The Stranger, Seattle's main alternative newspaper, endorsed Democratic State House Speaker Frank Chopp instead of Socialist Alternative challenger Jess Spear. This represents a 180 degree turn from its previous scathing opposition to Frank Chopp and support for the Socialist Alternative challenger to him in the last election.

A brief history of our feelings about Chopp here. This year's Chopp endorsement (plus a fiery comment thread where SA's response is already being discussed) right here.
