OLYMPIA, Wash. -- In an unusual move, a state representative from Blaine is endorsing a candidate for governor that’s not favored by his party to win. Just weeks away from the August 7 primary, 42nd District Republican Jason Overstreet says he’s backing Shahram Hadian in the race. Overstreet says he believes the little-known republican can win against candidates in the race with major name-recognition like Jay Inslee and Rob McKenna. Overstreet is joined by several other republican colleagues in the state house in endorsing Hadian. A total of nine gubernatorial candidates are on Augusts’ primary ballot.
