Yesterday, Republican activist Steve Beren announced his candidacy for U.S. Congress in Washington State's 7th District against the ultra-liberal Jim McDermott.
He filed today with the office of Washington's Secretary of State to run as an official write-in candidate (Washington allows the write-in vote, unlike Oklahoma).
Steve has run against McDermott before although he has not had much luck, gathering less than 20% of the votes in both 2006 and 2008. The 7th District is a largely Democratic District though I believe that the tide in Washington is turning more conservative and I feel that Steve will have much better luck this time around.
I for one am really glad that Steve is running against McDermott again and can't wait to see him kick McDermott's butt in November.
Jim. November is Coming! Are you ready?
