Ben Stuckart for Congress

I also received an email from Democrat Ben Stuckart who has declared his candidacy for 2018 primary election to run for the 5th Congressional District seat to run in the 2018 general election against McMorris .  Ben is currently the President of the Spokane City Council.  He was first elected in 2011 and was re-elected in 2015.

That’s why last year I was a statewide co-sponsor of Initiative 1464.  I partnered with the League of Women Voters and the Seattle Tea Party on the Initiative.

It’s become clearer with each passing day Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our national security.  Enabled by Congressional Republicans like our very own Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Trump repeatedly puts classified information at risk and jeopardizes the lives of our agents abroad despite warnings from our dedicated and hard-working intelligence agencies.
