Seattle Mayor
In this Oct. 9, 2013 photo, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn, left, listens as Sen. Ed Murray answers a question during a debate in their race for mayor, in Seattle. Seattle’s mayoral hopefuls this year have been stumbling over each other as they try to appeal to the city’s left-leaning voters, making promises that would be liabilities elsewhere but resonate in the eco-friendly city that’s home to Starbucks and Amazon.com. Both unabashedly support substantial new taxes, a $15 minimum wage and legal marijuana. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
