Is it a tactic used in mostly-GOP areas, or something unique to Washington?

Not at all. Here in Evanston and the greater Chicago metropolitan area, there are several Democrats opting for green as a primary color on bumper stickers and other political collateral. My theory--and this seems to have some anecdotal basis, at least here--is that it has some anti-Nader effect in terms of attracting voters that would otherwise vote Green locally.

Then again, we're talking about Chicago, where voting anything other than Democrat--and more precisely the Democrat the machine wants you to vote for--is likely to get you a property tax hike based on an inflated assessed value (if you own your home) and a couple of party goons at your door. If you don't believe that, well, I know a nice Democratic couple living two doors from an alderman related to the Governor that could certainly prove it for having voted for the wrong Democrat. It's rather unfortunate, really.
