From Rob Hotakainen, The Olympian:
“The new Congress is not even one month old, but Washington state Democratic Rep. Denny Heck is already looking ahead to the next session, making plans aimed at reviving his party in the 2016 elections.
After taking a beating in 2014, Democrats in the House of Representatives have tapped Heck to lead their 25-member recruitment committee for next year.
Its a big assignment for Heck, 62, a second-term congressman from Olympia.”
