So he’s cutting and running. WA-06 was D+5 under the old map, and
didn’t particularly change much under the new one (Washington is a rare
blue state that actually gained a district because of the last Census);
this district is still favorable to the Democrats, but it’s now
legitimately in play. And by all accounts it’s a blue-collar district
that is going to want a Democratic candidate that is pretty much like
Dicks in terms of defense policy; whether the Democratic party can find
them one – or one that can fake it well enough – is a matter of some
Red State
