Read about Washington state politics in the Economist

By | June 8, 2009 | Comments

I was surprised to open last week’s edition of The Economist to find this story, which begins with the line: “We in Washington state ‘get our business done.’” (The quote is from Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown.)

The article focuses on how politically moderate this state is and attributes it to the voting system. It’s an interesting perspective — an international magazine’s take on Washington’s politics compared to our neighbor states.

Update: And here’s a blog post by the folks in the Secretary of State’s Office (their blog, From Our Corner, is a must-read) on the same article.
