Reichert Challenger Fires Up the Burners Again

Darcy Burner (D) wants another shot at Rep. Dave Reichert (R) in the suburban Seattle 8th district.

The former Microsoft manager surprised pundits and party officials by evolving from political novice to top-tier challenger in the previous cycle.

Burner lost to Reichert, the former King County sheriff, 51 percent to 49 percent in the swing district, and she believes she can build on the momentum from her surprisingly strong showing. Although he remains popular thanks to his storied law enforcement career, Reichert is likely to be a regular Democratic target.
