Fearing on Target to Win

At the close of the initial primary vote counting on Tuesday George Fearing, the Democratic party candidate for the Washington 4th congressional district, was clearing on target to eventually post a win in November's general election with 35% of the vote. His general election opponent, the incumbent Richard Hastings, did poorer in the congressional district that Republican candidate for governor did in the same area. That is to say that incumbent Hastings didn't do as well as his gubernatorial rematch colleague. Many Rossi voters found it distasteful to vote for Hastings. He is not sufficiently well-liked by the swing voting people in his district to garner enough independent votes to win the general election.

Hastings is toast.
