Less than two months ago, Jim McDermott assured the far-left supporters who have kept him in office for nearly three decades that he was running for re-election, even though a Democrat state representative had announced a primary challenge to him.
Turns out that was just another example of McDermott’s willingness to avoid the truth when it suited him (remember the illegal leak of cellular call that he denied, and was later convicted of doing).
According to the Associated Press, McDermott is telling colleagues that he will announce his retirement today.
So now eyes will turn towards the Seattle Mayor’s office, to see if Ed Murray leads a parade of liberals in running for the now open (and very safe for a Democrat) congressional seat.
Let the left’s version of the Hunger Games begin.
