Seattle Mayor
In this Oct. 9, 2013 photo, Sen. Ed Murray smiles as he turns toward supporters following debate in Seattle with Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn, in their race for mayor. 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)
