UPDATE: There are news reports that Rev. Charles Harrison is backing away from running for mayor with the entry of Williams into the race; however, there is nothing preventing Harrison from entering the race following the primary as an independent candidate. It has been rumored that Harrison might run as a Libertarian. If the Republicans have another candidate they intend to slate at their slating convention later this month, that candidate would be the odds-on-favorite to win the primary election, particularly against a candidate like Williams who supported incumbent Democratic Mayor Bart Peterson's re-election in 2007 before his appointment as a deputy mayor in the Ballard administration, and whose ties to the Republican Party are pretty thin and short-lived.
