Darcy Burner kicks off campaign

Darcy Burner, a candidate for Washington's 8th Congressional District, officially kicked off her campaign earlier this evening at Marymoor's Clise Mansion.

She was introduced by our local party chair, Ralph Gorin, and spoke at length about her campaign plans and her vision for America.

Darcy has a rich background and a deep understanding of the challenges that the 8th District, and our entire nation, for that matter, face. I am impressed by her intelligence and her commitment to traditional American values.

She frequently pointed out that Representative Reichert does not represent his district. "The Sheriff" has voted with Tom Delay 92% of the time during his tenure in the U.S. House.

That record does not match the values of Reichert's constituents. The 8th voted for John Kerry and Patty Murray in the last election. It is a Democratic district that should be represented by a Democrat, but isn't.

Darcy hopes to mount a strong, viable campaign to unseat Reichert. She has left her job at Microsoft to campaign full time.

I believe Darcy has the passion and the desire to win this office. I know that she will make an excellent representative for Washington's 8th Congressional District.
