Former opponent Joe McDermott endorses Brady Piñero Walkinshaw for Congress

Openly gay King County Council Chair Joe McDermott today announced his endorsement of Brady Piñero Walkinshaw for Washington’s 7th Congressional District. In a statement, McDermott — who ran against Walkinshaw in the Democratic primary — said “Brady is the leader we need in Congress.” 
“Brady is a bridge-builder who reaches across the aisle to solve real problems and the communities of the Seventh District need a partner in Congress who will focus on getting things done,” said McDermott. “That’s why he’s earned the support of dozens of his colleagues and local community leaders, and I will be proud to partner with him as our next Representative.”
It has been an exciting election year for Washington state, with an unprecedented number of viable LGBTQ candidates running for state and federal office in the primaries and now the general election. In addition to Brady, Tina Podlodowski is running for Secretary of State, Mary Yu for reelection to the state Supreme Court, Laurie Jinkins for reelection to State House, Christine Kilduff for a first-term in the State House, Johanna Bender and Anthony Gipe for King County Superior Court, and Robert Gelder for reelection as Kitsap County Commissioner.
