Frank Chopp

Andrew Garber at the Seattle Times offers up an election-cycle portrait of Washington State House Speaker Frank Chopp (D-43).  It's a bit of a puff piece, but it does offer a bit of a glimpse into the important role that Chopp plays in recruiting candidates and raising money for them from fellow Democrats. 

Of course, this is Washington State, not Washington DC, so instead of a smoke-filled room, Chopp does deals in the back room of a Wallingford Tully's.

Worth a read.
