Hastings endorses Reagan Dunn for WA Attorney General

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Congressman Doc Hastings stopped in Kennewick Friday to endorse Republican Candidate Reagan Dunn as the state's next Attorney General.

Dunn has been a King County council member for the last nine years. Dunn says he's the only candidate who has experience dealing with both criminal and civil law, as well as federal appeals cases. He says that will be very helpful when dealing with the ongoing lawsuit over Yucca Mountain.

"It's clearly an administration that's dragging their feet when it comes to Hanford and Yucca Mountain. and from time to time, a well placed lawsuit, based on the merits, forcing the Federal government to follow its commitment needs to happen. And I'll be sure that does happen," said Dunn.

Dunn is the son of former Congresswoman Jennifer Dunn. He is running against fellow King County Councilman Bob Ferguson.
