Toby Nixon wants back in the House

Posted by David Postman

Former Republican state Rep. Toby Nixon has reversed an earlier decision and says he'll campaign this year to regain the House seat he gave up for an unsuccsesful Senate run in 2006. Nixon, a Microsoft manager, will run for the 45th District seat held by Democrat Roger Goodman.

Nixon lost the '06 race for an open Senate seat to Democrat Eric Oemig. Nixon is president of the Washington Coalition for Open Government and led the King County initiative that will create an elected elections chief.

Nixon said he changed his mind about not running after being urged to run by Democrats and Republicans.

After watching the legislature’s failure once again to make any real progress toward solving the major problems in our state -- while continuing their relentless drive toward fiscal disaster -- I am disgusted along with the rest of the people of Washington. The incumbent had his chance and did nothing to change things. I am determined to win this election, return to Olympia, and take the lead implementing the new direction the people of the 45th District demand.
