FILE -- In this March 26, 2013 file photo, Republican state Sen. Doug Ericksen, left, and Democratic state Sen. Kevin Ranker listen to testimony from a climate change skeptic at a hearing in Olympia, Wash. Flush with cash from California billionaire Tom Steyer, a Washington state environmental group is backing candidates this November who they think can help Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee pass ambitious climate change legislation. The Washington Conservation Voters Action Fund has given about $345,000 to a newly formed group that has started running negative ads to unseat Ericksen, who has been a vocal critic of some Inslee ideas to curb carbon pollution.
