Longtime State Representative Timm Ormsby is taking on a political newcomer to the area, Paul Delaney, for House Representative in District 4, and after the first results came in Tuesday night, it appears Ormsby is heading for another term, with a substantial lead over Delaney.

Ormsby, who has been a State Representative since 2003, says his top priorities are good jobs with benefits, affordable and accessible health care, and access to educational opportunities.

Ormsby stated on his campaign website, "It's been a privilege and honor to serve Spokane for the last eleven years in the State Legislature. It is more critical than ever to elect experienced and proven leaders who can build on our legislative successes and continue to fight for Spokane's best interests."

Delaney, who prefers the libertarian party, twice ran for the State House of Representatives in Oregon and was appointed to the Willamina, Oregon City Council in 2007.

"I strongly believe in the first and second amendments. I will work for the government to live within its means, after all it expects you the citizens to. I am tired of Spokane residents tax dollars being spent for projects on the west side and will fight for your tax dollars to be spent on projects that Spokane needs done. I will stand up to regulators that want to regulate all aspects of your life. I believe that you should have the freedom to make decisions that you feel are right for you and your families not the government," Delaney said on his website.

In the August Primary, Ormsby had 69% of the vote to 30% for Delaney.
