Contesting the 45th: big oil jumps in

Big Oil has jumped into a special Washington State Senate election, in the 45th District on the Eastside, the nationally watched battle whose outcome will decide which party controls the Legislature.
Phillips 66 has given $100,000 to a group called Citizens for Progress Enterprise Washington -- spelled "Enterpise" in its Public Disclosure Commission filing -- that is making "independent" expenditures boosting Republican candidate Jinyoung Englund.

Englund is a protege of U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., the Eastern Washington GOP lawmaker who serves in the House Republican leadership. She has worked in a variety of Republican causes, including the 2012 Mitt Romney campaign.

Englund just moved into the district, no doubt following the Republican's master plan for national domination

1. This is the best chance we've had since the Senate coup to retake the Senate.

Phillips jumping in to support the Republican shows this is both a state wide and nationally important race.
