With less than three weeks to go, The Analysts  rev up their discussion of state and national politics. Joni Balter, KCTS9 political analyst, and C.R. Douglas, political analyst for Q13, offer their insights into many of the momentous choices facing Washington voters. Perhaps you are wondering how Hillary Clinton might fare against Donald Trump in our state?

Maybe you are perplexed by some of the statewide initiatives. The Analysts weigh in.
