Senator Steve Johnson (R-47) To Retire

State Sen. Steve Johnson (R-47) will retire when his current term is up in 2006.   

As a senator, Johnson served as Majority Floor Leader in 1997, Republican Floor Leader in 1999, and Deputy Republican Leader in 2001 and 2002. He is currently the ranking Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and serves on the Legislative Ethics Board.

His rural King County district is a tight district.  Both Representatives from the 47th are currently Democrats.  An open seat there could be very exciting, and a good chance for a new State Democratic Chair to show whether he or she can field winning candidates in tough races.
