Reichert continues to be, if not green, at least a nice shade of chartreuse.
Republican Dave Reichert reminded the Democrats today that he isn't a formidable opponent because he's a giant of the GOP, rather because he's the very definition of moderate, just like the district he represents.
But Reichert remains a staunch fiscal conservative. He opposed the Democrats' budget and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (aka the stimulus package), both of which included money for environmental projects. That knocked down his score from LCV--which is probably a good thing.
If winning on the Eastside is all about dressing up conservative policies with a little responsible environmentalism, Reichert's score today proved that he's a master of it.
