UPDATED Friday 8 pm: Chris Armitage suspended his campaign on Friday, July 17.

Ballots will go out in the mail today and for the rest of the week for Washington’s August 4 primary election. We’ve been interviewing candidates for the last couple of weeks, all of them so far in the competitive races in Spokane’s Fourth Legislative District.

But today and tomorrow [Wednesday and Thursday] we’ll switch to the two Democrats challenging Cathy McMorris Rodgers for her Fifth District Congressional seat.

Today, we’ll hear from Chris Armitage, a former military police officer who is now running on many of the issues that appeal to progressives in his party.

On Thursday, we’ll hear from Armitage's opponent, fellow Democrat Dave Wilson.
