Candidate Interview: Spokane Valley Senator Mike Padden

Washington State Republican Caucus

We begin a series of summer interviews with Washington legislative candidates who are running in races with three or more candidates. In Spokane's Fourth Legislative district, Republican Senator Mike Padden is seeking a third term. He's challenged by Democrat John Roskelley, whom we'll hear from tomorrow, and Independent Ann Marie Danimus, whom we'll hear from on Friday.

Here's Doug Nadvornick's interview with Mike Padden.
