Congratulations to (the other) Washington for Richardson

As some of you may recall, I made a bet with my friend Mike Kruger at D.C. for Richardson. Mike and I made a friendly wager just over 10 days ago. I bet Mike that by June 15, Washington state for Richardson would be a larger group than D.C. for Richardson. Mike, wanting to show that D.C. deserved statehood as much as Washington, issued the challenge, and we bet $51.43, with the loser paying the Richardson campaign. 51 is representative of D.C. becoming the 51st state, and 43 signifies Washington being the 43rd state.

The bill has now come due. Congratulations to D.C. for Richardson, which as of tonight stands at 83 members to Washington state for Richardson at 67 members. I'll be contributing $51.43 to the Richardson campaign, through the D.C. for Richardson group, so they get credit for the fundraising.

Score round one to D.C., but e're not done yet with the "other Washington".
