Burner Will Run In 1st Congressional Race
Darcy Burner, who ran twice unsuccessfully in Washington's 8th Congressional District, has announced that she will run again. This time Burner will run for the House seat being vacated by Democrat Jay Inslee, who is now running for Governor. Representing the more urban areas on the Eastside, the 1st is considered an easier district for a Democrat to win. The problem for Burner, several Democrats, including the very seasoned former LegislatorLaura Ruderman, have announce their desire to run for that seat. Burner, a former Microsoft executive, is one of the first Washington politicians to embrace new technology as it has pertained to campaigning. She has been very skilled at raising campaign funds through Netroots, a national network of liberal bloggers.
