Rep. McIntire to run for state treasurer

Posted by David Postman at 3:17 PM

Rep. Jim McIntire, D-Seattle, says he'll run for state treasurer next year instead of a sixth-term in the Legislature. McIntire teaches economics at the University of Washington and has focused on those issues in the Legislature. But his support for considering a state income tax cost him his chairmanship of the House Finance Committee last year when Democrats decided they didn't like such talk.

State Treasurer Mike Murphy, a Democrat, has announced he's retiring next year. Murphy is backing his deputy, Republican Allan Martin, for the job.
