Isssaquah Brewhous at a pep rally/fundraiser for Democratic state senate candidates Lisa Wellman and Mark Mullet. Wellman is running against Republican incumbent Steve Litzow in the 41st LD, while Mullet is defending his seat in the 5th. Both districts run through Issaquah. US Senator Maria Cantwell (above) was the featured speaker. Cantwell will run for reelection in 2018.
Also speaking was 41st LD house member Tana Senn, who is also running for reelection this year. Ironically, Senn's cousin, Deborah ran against Cantwell in the 2000 US Senate Democratic primary.
