RELEASE: “More About Legislating Than Posturing”

Jun. 27, 2012


Lakewood, Washington – Denny Heck was cited yesterday by national political analyst Stuart Rothenberg as one of the most impressive candidates running for the U.S. House of Representatives nationwide this year. Rothenberg has interviewed more than one hundred House candidates from around the country this cycle alone.

“Heck, a Washington state Democrat, lost a bid for Congress two years ago but is in much better position this time thanks to the creation of a new Congressional district in the state. A former state House Majority Leader, he understands government and policy. Heck is a thoughtful, no-nonsense legislator whose generally liberal views should fit his district. But unlike some Members from both parties, he is likely to be more about legislating than posturing.” – Stuart Rothenberg

Heck is running in the newly created 10th Congressional District. The 10th is a Democratic district that gave President Obama 58% of the major party vote in 2008.

Denny Heck, 59, is an entrepreneur, former State Representative and co-founder of TVW, a statewide public affairs TV channel in Washington State. Denny attended and graduated from The Evergreen State College in 1973 and has lived in Olympia for the past 26 years with his wife Paula and their two children, Bob and Trey. Denny and Paula, a retired middle school principal, have been married 36 years.
