Sen. Karen Fraser announces run for lieutenant governor
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington state Sen. Karen Fraser says she's running for lieutenant governor. The Olympia Democrat said in a statement Tuesday that her 27 years of legislative experience sets her apart from others seeking the position. Fellow Democratic Sen. Cyris Habib announced last month that he was seeking the office currently held by Democrat Brad Owen. Owen has served in the position since he was first elected in 1996. Owen has not yet made a decision whether to seek re-election.
