Mayoral hopefuls make Seattle the ‘Capital of the Resistance’
SEATTLE -- The race for mayor in Seattle is wide open now that incumbent Ed Murray has bowed out, with two more candidates joining the race Friday morning. Former U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan and state Rep. Jessyn Farrell, D-Seattle, are the latest in a growing field of about a dozen candidates. Under Murray, Seattle became nationally known for liberal causes. Political leaning goes from "left" and then "left-left.”
