SEATTLE — 2020 is a special election year with key positions being filled on Federal, State, and County level. The Washington State race for Lt. Governor is particularly interesting.  There's been some intrigue with the departure of our current Lt. Governor, Cyrus Habib and some pretty interesting scenarios arise depending upon who wins the Presidential and Washington State Governor seats.
