Voters in Washington’s Fourth Legislative District are choosing between two candidates to fill an open seat in the state House of Representatives.
The candidates are Democrat Lance Gurel, who ran unsuccessfully last year for a seat on the Spokane Valley City Council, and Republican Rob Chase. He’s a former two-term Spokane County treasurer who started this election cycle challenging Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers before switching to run for the state House. He was encouraged to run by the departing representative, Matt Shea.
You can hear our entire interviews with the candidates at our website, but we provide shorter bites here as part of our SPR Voters’ Guide series.
