Cascade Conference 2017

The 2017 Cascade Conference received region-wide coverage from various press outlets, and the 36th consecutive event was certainly one to remember. Joel Connelly and Knute Berger provide complementary accounts of the conference for their respective publications, focusing on the national political climate and its effect in the Pacific Northwest; the legacy of speakers Dan Evans and Slade Gorton, and the differences between now and when they governed the state; and the unusually important off-year elections coming up in the fall of 2017. They provide the same observation on one thing in particular: while Mainstream advocates and those gathered at the conference may vary ideologically and on specific policies, these Republicans are very different from the national brand.

I saw parts of this on TV. The economist was quite interesting as were the comments from participants.
