Caucuses aren’t just about nominating presidential candidates. They are a chance for party regulars to swap rumors and for new-comers to be introduced. In Kent, where as many as 700 people attended the GOP caucus at Kentlake High School, Mark Hargrove announced to the crowd that he would be a candidate for the Legislature.
Hargrove said he will run for the 47th District seat now held by Democrat Geoff Simpson, says reporter Yu Nakayma:
Among the issues Hargrove discussed, he highlighted the fact that he and his family members are all politically active Republicans.
"If you look up 'conservative' in the dictionary, you'll find a picture of... my wife," Hargrove said, jokingly. "She's much better looking than me, so they'll put a picture of her in there. But I'm probably included in the third definition or something."
Hargrove, 51, is an instructor pilot for Boeing. Other than being the elected PCO for the Covington precinct, he hasn't held office before.
