Former CDC official Shannon Hader (D) wrote an open letter hinting that national Democrats may try to interfere with the Democratic field in the race to succeed Rep. Dave Reichert (R). “[W]e are disturbed by reports that party insiders and big-money outsiders are trying to bigfoot the voters of our community and interfere with the primary race,” she wrote in the letter posted to her website. She noted the DCCC’s interference in the TX-07 primary.

There are several Democrats in the August top-two primary. National Republicans are rallying around state Sen. Dino Rossi (R).
