Remember the last Congressional redistricting? Washington got an extra seat, and at least from outside, it seemed like the Democrats’ main objective was making sure Denny Heck had a seat.
I saw someone retweet Congressman Heck the other day, and I realized how little I hear about what he’s doing. I know he has been in the minority party in an obstructionist Congress, but you hear about other Democrats from Washington more often. According to his Wikipedia page, his big thing is marijuana banking. I don’t know if that’s his priority, or the priority of Wikipedia editors.
Still, he got a safe seat, and I would have hoped he could use it better than a generic Democrat.
