Washington State Republican Enters Race to Defeat Rep. Baird

More than a decade after managing a campaign against Democrat Brian Baird, Republican David B. Castillo will launch his own bid against the current six-term congressman in Washington state.

Castillo, now a financial advisor, filed paperwork this week to run for Congress in the southwestern 3rd District, but said his desire to run was not based on the current lawmaker.

“I haven’t really spent much time thinking about him,” Castillo said of Baird.
“I want to be a voice for those people who believe that taxes are too high, that government spending is out of control, and that there’s better solutions to our economy than the same old tired 1970’s solutions.”
