Coal terminal dogs Democrats running in closely divided new Wash. district

A coal terminal proposed for rural northwest Washington state is shaping up to be a major headache for Democrats vying to represent Washington's diverse new 1st District. The Gateway Pacific Terminal proposed for Cherry Point near Ferndale, Wash., is entering the next stage of its environmental permitting process this summer and is still at least two years away from breaking ground. But a political tug of war is already under way in the newly drawn House district, pitting two powerful Democratic constituencies -- labor and environmentalists -- against each other over whether the project should go forward.
