Local Democrat Mulls Congressional Bid

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA. -- Another candidate may be joining a crowded field running for Representative Doc Hastings' seat.

Local Yakima business owner Tony Sandoval says he is deciding whether to throw his name in the ring. Sandoval has been involved in the state democratic party for 25 years, working as Vice Chairman in the Fourth Congressional District and founding the Latino Caucus of State Democrats.

"The reason that I've thought about it and know that I would be a good candidate is that I've been at it for 25 plus years, not only in politics but the community," Tony Sandoval said.

Sandoval would join more than 10 people already running for the slot. The official filing period ends in May.
