Democrats lead in the generic ballot is shrinking

We're under 5% and the latest Ipsos poll shows Republicans with a 1 point lead. We won't reclaim the House if those numbers hold up. The GOP have unlimited amounts of money and are very well organized. Student canvassers have supposedly have already rung 10-million doorbells for GOP candidates this year. i think we're seeing that effort reflected in the polling for the generic ballot. If you think a blue wave is inevitable, remember, so was Hillary. Support the Party, join with others, organize, work for your local candidates. We must not fail.

A House panel will decide next week whether to suspend Tacoma Rep. David Sawyer from his committee chairmanship after preliminary findings from an investigation into his conduct, House Democratic leaders said Friday evening.

The independent investigation into Sawyer's behavior is ongoing, but House leaders said in a news release the inquiry had "confirmed evidence supporting some allegations" against the Democrat, prompting them to take action.

In a February story by The News Tribune, The Olympian and public radio's Northwest News Network, eight women accused Sawyer of engaging in behavior before and after he joined the Legislature that ranged from inappropriate to harassing.

The allegations included persistent or suggestive electronic messaging, unwanted attention and comments with sexual overtones.
