Rodney Tom NOT Running for Reelection

Rodney Tom

Rodney Tom

Rodney Tom, the turncoat Democrat who switched sides and gave us two years of Republicans controlling the state Senate has announced he will not run for reelection. This surprise announcement has left Republicans scrambling for a candidate in the district. Joan McBride, the actual Democrat in the race has raised over $61,000 and has been campaigning for a month already.

What are the ramifications for Whatcom? It means that the entire balance of the state Senate is held by one vote – and Sen. Doug Ericksen may have a seriously competitive race as the whole state turns its eyes to the 42nd District.



  1. In Doug’s defense, you have to admit that a circus is no fun without a clown.

    • And you, I assume, are a Ronald mcDonald reject.

  2. The curious correlation between the ruination of one’s future in politics and the co-attendant interest in focusing on one’s family and personal health.

  3. Riley,

    Who will be Sen. Ericksen’s opponent? In 2014?

    In your Categories list you are missing BNSF oil trains and oil refineries – 2 of the biggest industries in Whatcom and Skagit counties.


  4. Good. Fuck Rodney Tom and “gawd” help the 42nd district Date: Mon, 14 Apr 2014 19:20:22 +0000 To:

  5. Tell us more about Joan McBride….hopefully not another corporate Democrat. (can you tell I’m tired?)
