Denny Heck Receives the Sole Endorsement of The Seattle Times

Jul. 19, 2012


Olympia, Washington – Denny Heck received the endorsement of The Seattle Times this morning. Unlike in some of the races contested in Washington’s August 7th top-two primary, the paper did not endorse a candidate from each party and instead chose to only endorse Heck.

Key excerpts from the endorsement include: 

  • “Denny Heck is the superior choice among the candidates vying to become Washington's first representative from the newly formed 10th Congressional District.”
  • “The Olympia Democrat possesses an impressive level of public- and private-sector experience.”
  • “Heck offers the best bipartisan, thoughtful approach for the state's new congressional district.”

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.
