A Close Race in the East

We at Native Vote Washington thought we would let everyone know that there is likely going to be a close race in the 6th Legislative District Representative, held by Don Barlow (D).  Barlow is a Native American, a member of the Ottawa Tribe of Oklahoma. 

Barlow won his seat in 2006 by just 260 votes over incumbent John Serben (R).  Serben won round one in 2004 by beating Barlow by 2361 votes.

The gloves have already come off in the battle between the Republican challengers, Mel Lindauer and Kevin Parker.

According to PolitickerWA.com, Barlow has $23,000 on hand, Lindauer has $21,000 and Parker has $19,000.  

Prior to Barlow’s victory, the 6th LD had sent Republicans to Olympia for the past 66 years.
