Rep. David Taylor, R-Moxee, has endorsed Shahram Hadian for governor. In a joint press release with three other state representatives, none from the Yakima Valley, Taylor praised Hadian’s “pro-life, pro-marriage” positions, including his pledge “to stop the implementation of Obamacare in Washington State.”

Other Republicans battling in the primary are Attorney General Rob McKenna, Max Sampson, an aerospace worker from Black Diamond and Javier Lopez of Lacey.
