Wow. The tubes are on fire today.

1) Chris Grygiel at the's Strange Bedfellows blog thinks King County Executive Dow Constantine could be lining up to run for governor.

2) Grygiel also reports on a press conference at which City Attorney Pete Holmes came out in favor of embattled city attorney Ed McKenna.

3) RH Reality Check has a giant post taking on Dino Rossi's record on choice.

4) Sightline crunches the numbers on Initiative 1098, the high-earners' income tax, and finds that there's no correlation between state income taxes and the number of millionaires in a state, and that there's a positive correlation between high top marginal tax rates and GDP growth.

5) The Tacoma News Tribune's Political Buzz blog calls the 8th District congressional race between incumbent Dave Reichert and Suzan DelBene a "mud bath."

6) Perhaps not surprisingly, the TNT couldn't get Reichert to agree to a debate with DelBene.

7) The Spokesman-Review's Spin Control says a group opposing state Sen. Chris Marr, which calls itself "Spokane Families for Change," is not funded by families or by people from Spokane.

8 ) Over on its blog, the Transportation Choices Coalition announces a new campaign to save bus service in Pierce County, where a sales-tax increase for transit is on the ballot in November.

9) King County has been awarded a $34 million TIGER II grant, the final installment in funding to replace the South Park Bridge, the state department of transportation reports on its blog.
