Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich will be in Bellevue next month for a special Father's Day fundraiser for Congressman Dave Reichert, R-Auburn.
(It was during his Bellevue stop for Reichert in 2006 that Gingrich said the U.S. was in the midst of World War III, and urged President Bush to say that publicly.)
Sandeep Kaushik, a spokesman for Reichert opponent Darcy Burner, said Reichert says "he is saddened by the partisan tone in Washington, D.C.," "the truth is he is tied at the wallet to some of the most partisan and extreme Republican leaders, whose support he actively seeks and enthusiastically welcomes."
Reichert has benefited from, among others, fundraisers headlined Gingrich, President Bush and Vice President Cheney. But it's hard to measure the fallout, if any, given Reichert's 2006 re-election over Burner.
