The ‘Fighter with the Hard Left Hook’

Sure, maybe Hillary can do shots with the guys in PA, but she’d better thank her stars she’s not up against this guy in the primary.

Charlie Pope, former reporter at The State (and my former teammate on the Cosmic Ha-Has softball team), is now covering Washington for a paper in the Pacific Northwest. He brought my attention to this candidate from his neck of the woods, Steve Novick.

He has not only proven that he’s a good progressive, he’s a skilled progressive legislator that presided over the greenest and most labor friendly session in thirty years. If anybody wants to check out Merkley’s stance on UHC go here.
