The lack of any big high profile elections in the Washington State primary last week meant it was mostly ignored by the media, but it could prove to be incredibly interesting as a predictor for the general election. If past trends hold, it would indicate that down ballot Democratic prospects in the upcoming election have significantly improved since 2010.

Blanche is blasting Halter for having out-of-state support in his bid to unseat her.
Is she going to forgo support from outside the state? Do Barack Obama and the DSCC hail from Arkansas too? How about her donors at Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Monsanto, Pfizer, Koch Industries — or the lobbyists at Patton Boggs, Mehlman Vogel Castagnetti, and Akin Gump?
I guess the lesson learned is that in Blanche’s world, “out of state” + powerful = good, “out of state” + grassroots = bad.
