Primary night, starring Suzan DelBene

Bathed in stage light, Suzan DelBene arrives at the Kirkland Performing Arts center (Steve Ringman / The Seattle Times).

Suzan DelBene, the Democratic establishment choice for the first Congressional district, usually sticks to talking points during debates, so perhaps it’s not surprising that her primary-night party at the Kirkland Performance Center feels a lot like opening night of a regional play.

There’s the marquee  announcing the DelBene reception. The stage, set up with a podium, and volunteers waiting for show time, when the numbers roll in,

“I know a lot of these people,” she said a few minutes ago, as she came down to the stage to hug and shake hands with supporters.

Asked how she thought she would do tonight, she said, “I’m not one to speculate. We’ll find out soon enough.”
