is NOT planning to run for the St Senate seat vacated by Sen. Darlene Fairley. In a short news item today in "Morning Fizz", there was first a statement made that Kagi would run against Maralyn Chase for the seat. Chase has already declared a week ago that she is running for State Senate.
But there is now a correction, stating -
Editor’s note. Our original Item No. 2 reported that Democratic State Rep. Ruth Kagi was squaring off with Democratic State Rep. Maralyn Chase to replace retiring State Sen. Darlene Fairley (D-32, Snohomish). We were wrong. Only Chase has declared. Kagi is not running. We have removed that report.We appreciate the responsiveness of Publicola in this fast moving climate and the service it provides to get information out quickly.
