In mid-May I introduced Democrat Karen Porterfield on The Daily Weekly. Porterfield is vying for the 8th District Congressional seat currently held by Dave Reichert. But Porterfield isn't the only political type with her eye on Reichert's job.
As was noted by Karen Miller at The News Tribune in Tacoma earlier today, Keith Swank, a Constitutional Conservative Republican and with 21 years under his belt working for the Seattle Police Department (most recently, according to his online bio, as Acting Lieutenant of the 911 Call Center), is also making a run at Reichert.
Of course, if I lived in the 8th District I'd be tempted to vote for Swank simply because his name is Keith Swank. It either sounds really bad-ass, or like a weirdo combination of Hillary Swank and Keith Sweat - either of which I would find deserving of public office.
Keith Swank, candidate for Washington's 8th congressional District seat, will debut a new campaign ad July 2. The commercial will air in Eastern Washington, but Swank's campaign is looking for donations to help the spot run in Western Washington.
