Dow Constantine slowly weaved through a crowd of supporters at the Edgewater Hotel in Seattle, smiling and shaking hands with supporters as he scrambled for the podium. He claimed victory in the race for King County Executive on Tuesday night. Election results rolled on TV screens.

Recently, an e-mail flew around about King County Executive candidate Susan Hutchison and her alleged rude treatment of Dow Constantine’s Chinese American supporter the Chinese Leaders’ forum in Bellevue on Oct. 10.
We are endorsing Dow Constantine because of his proven record of reforming King County. He brings with him experience and education. Constantine has the credentials: a law degree and a degree in urban planning.
Susan Hutchison and Dow Constantine are vying for the position of King County Executive this November.
Hutchison, known by many locals for her time as a KIRO 7 News anchor, currently serves as executive director of the Charles Simonyi Fund for Arts and Sciences, a philanthropic foundation based in Seattle that provides grants to art, science, and education programs.

Wow! What interesting election results. And it’s only the primaries, too.

I would not have known about her lawsuit regarding replacement “from the prime news anchor spots with an Asian female who is substantially younger.”
