Ronda Metcalf, Sauk-Suiattle, a Formidable Candidate for Washington State Legislature


It’s roughly a month before the general election and Ronda Metcalf’s ascension to the Washington state House of Representatives from the 39th District now seems not so out of reach.

Metcalf, Sauk-Suiattle, faces John Koster, a former state legislator and Snohomish County Council member whose campaign for U.S. House of Representatives in 2012 – in which he was favored to win – was derailed when he referred to sexual assault as “the rape thing” when answering a question about abortion.

With his party’s presidential nominee’s offensive comments about women regularly making news, Koster’s “rape thing” is a dark cloud over him.
