A delegate fight in one Queen Anne precinct

The delegate vote went down to the wire for nine Queen Anne neighbors of precinct 36-1747. Two nominees competed to be delegates by arguing passionately for their candidate of choice.

“I would like the opportunity to go around and discuss with each of you … So I can represent your ideas, said Lee Eggebroten.

Eggebroten, an avid Ron Paul supporter, ultimately won the opportunity to be a delegate after a courteous but vigorous discussion at the Labor Temple in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood.

His table had to elect a delegate from among five Mitt Romney supporters, three supporters of Ron Paul and longtime Republican John Bottum, who said he finds all the Republican nominees so extreme he likely won’t vote for any of them.

“There’s no place for the more pragmatic realist,” Bottum said. “It’s a really interesting dynamic. You can see everybody’s sort of polarized.”
