Cantwell, Larsen endorse Ranker for state Senate
San Juan County Councilman Kevin Ranker has been endorsed for state Senate by Sen. Maria Cantwell and Rep. Rick Larsen.
Ranker is the Democratic nominee; former state representative Steve Van Luven of Samish Island is on the Nov. 4 ballot as the Republican nominee.
“In my experience working with Kevin Ranker on a variety of issues, I believe he will be able to make an immediate impact as a state senator by improving the quality of life of the people he represents," Cantwell said in a press release.
Retiring senator Harriet Spanel, state Rep. Dave Quall and state Rep. Jeff Morris are hosting an event for Ranker tonight at the Skagit River Brewery in Mount Vernon, 5-7 p.m.
In addition, the State Labor Council endorsed Ranker last week. “Kevin Ranker understands the needs of our region," Dave Warren, president of the Northwest Regional Labor Council, said in a press release. "He will work to uphold the dignity of our workers, the character of our communities, and the strength of our local economy."
