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.
