Most Excellent News For WA-03

Brian Baird to retire

Yes, even more excellent news.

In a stunning development (at least to me!) Brian Baird has announced that he will not seek re-election in 2010.

The time has now come to pursue other options, other ways of serving. Hence, I am announcing today that I do not intend to seek reelection to Congress in 2010…This is not an easy decision to be sure, but I believe it is the right decision at the right time.

Baird rather famously – or infamously – made some inflammatory comments about health care protesters late last summer

This is welcome news for Jon Russell and David Castillo, two Republicans already in the race. Cook rates WA-03 even.

Good things come in threes; I’m waiting…

Update 1: WSRP officials confirm that 18th Legislative District Representative, Jaime Herrera, will seek Baird’s seat.
