Tim Eyman finally dispenses with the pretense of running for governor as an independent

Con artist Tim Eyman declared yesterday that henceforth, he will be running for Washington State’s top position as a Republican, rather than as an independent, to the surprise and astonishment of pretty much nobody.

In a long, rambling, Trump-like speech delivered in Yakima to an adoring group of fans, Eyman excoriated his political adversaries, projected his own faults onto Democrats, and argued that Washingtonians are sick of one party rule in the statehouse – even though Washingtonians enthusiastically voted for one party rule as recently as fifteen months ago, in the 2018 midterms.

Democrats have now won nine straight gubernatorial elections, and as Jay Inslee goes for a third term, Eyman figures he’s got what it takes to break that streak.

But the data suggests otherwise.

A recent SurveyUSA poll found that Eyman was better known than Inslee’s other insignificant Republican challengers, but not by much.

Eyman only received 11% support in that survey — which was slightly better than the 7% he received in a prior statewide poll conducted by Elway Research for Crosscut/KCTS9, but still woefully anemic for a statewide candidate.

1. Well, he'd probably get Trumps endorsement

Two peas in a pod, both shysters. Fortunately I’d say his chances in WA are about nil. Of course that’s not why he’d run anyway, it would just be to line his own pockets.
