Shaw opts out

If you listen closely, you might hear a noise somewhere that sounds a bit like what Ross Perot loved to call a “giant sucking sound.” It’s a collective sigh of relief from GOP candidates for Eastern Washington’s U.S. House seat.

The cause: Longtime television anchor Randy Shaw told his bosses last weekend that he was not going to run for Congress.

Shaw had talked to party leaders about a potential campaign in the fall but held off on a final decision. He said he spent time over the holidays giving the race serious thought and talking with his family, then he decided he’d stay put at the KREM anchor desk.

While some Republicans already in the race had minimized Shaw’s chances, several GOP cognoscenti were saying he had one thing that none of the current crop of candidates has: instant name recognition throughout the far-flung district.
