Incumbent won't challenge inclusion of Pasco District 1 write-in

Schrader won't fight presence of write-in

County Commissioner Ted Schrader Monday ruled out challenging the legitimacy of a write-in candidate whose presence will block 170,000 Democrats, independents and third-party voters from voting in the District 1 commission race. If Schrader and fellow Republican John Nicolette were the only candidates running, the Aug. 26 GOP primary would have been open to all voters. But the entry last week of John M. Taylor as a write-in candidate closed that primary race. The Pasco Democratic Party is considering a challenge because it questions whether Taylor actually resides in east Pasco's District 1. Schrader said he wants to focus on issues and it is more appropriate for someone harmed by the closed primary to fight it.
