Nancy McLaughlin, Spokane is Laugh’in

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.

While recently in Spokane, candidate for Governor, Jay Inslee, endorsed Democrat Andy Billig for the Washington State Senate.  Andy Billig is currently in the State House, but decided to run for the Senate when Democrat Lisa Brown announced her retirement.  Here is a paraphrasing of Jay Inslee’s comments about Billig.

I am a huge Andy Billig fan.  This guy is a leader who knows how lead organization and how to move it toward progress.  We need that in the Washington State Senate.  Andy success on the phosphorus bill was so stunning for a new legislator . . . to come in and seize that problem by the horns and get the done in such a short period of time.  This is something Spokane should be proud of, and I am proud to be his friend.
