Ben Stuckart wants to make it “loud and clear.” He does NOT support Republican Nancy McLaughlin in her campaign for the 3rd Legislative District against the up and coming Democrat Andy Billig. While running for the Washington State Senate, Nancy McLaughlin was caught red-handed faking the support of the popular Stuckart. Ben Stuckart, President of the Spokane City Council, was not happy. Stuckart is an Andy Billig supporter.
I will go farther than Stuckart. I think it was an intentional act to mislead voters. Nancy McLaughlin was hoping that a picture of herself with a popular Democrat would make her more appealing to Democratic voters in the Democratic leaning 3rd Legislative District. Stuckart won a large share of the votes in 2011 in the 3rd.
Spokane City Council President Ben Stuckart said Thursday that he didn’t give City Councilwoman Nancy McLaughlin permission to use a picture of him on a campaign mailer for state Senate.
The mailer, which began arriving in mailboxes this week, includes a picture of McLaughlin with Stuckart, Mayor David Condon and council members Mike Allen, Mike Fagan and Steve Salvatori.
Ben Stuckart Response to Nancy McLaughlin of Spokane
“I endorsed Andy Billig the day he declared for the state Senate,” Stuckart said in a written statement. “For Nancy’s campaign to use my photo implies endorsement of her candidacy. I denounce this action. It is misleading and inappropriate for her to use a photo of me in a campaign mailer.”
