Hedrick throws his support to Herrera

first_imgHeck, Herrera come out swingingTea Party Republican David W. Hedrick, who finished third in Tuesday’s top two primary for the open 3rd Congressional District seat, said Wednesday he’ll support state Rep. Jaime Herrera, R-Camas, in the general election campaign.“I like Jaime. I have a lot of respect for her,” he said. “She’s run an honorable campaign. It’s been clean between our two camps.”Hedrick, a Camas management consultant, won 13.5 percent of the vote districtwide in Wednesday returns, outpolling Republican David Castillo, a former Bush administration official who had been campaigning for the seat for 14 months.Hedrick said the mainstream news media failed to take seriously his campaign and the campaign of U.S. Senate candidate Clint Didier, a Tea Party candidate and former pro football player who made headlines when he won the endorsement of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Didier had 12.2 percent of the vote in Wednesday statewide returns. Some political observers expected him to make a stronger showing against U.S. Sen. Patty Murray and GOP front-runner Dino Rossi.last_img
