Hastings endorses Newhouse

Rep. Doc Hastings today endorsed Dan Newhouse as his replacement for Washington's 4th Congressional District seat.

Newhouse, the former state agriculture director, is running against Eltopia farmer and fellow Republican Clint Didier in the Central Washington district. 

Didier replied that Hastings was being pressured by “the Republican establishment and beltway insiders” to endorse Newhouse. 

“And remember, Doc is part of Speaker John Boehner's management team,” Didier said in his press release knocking the endorsement.

That's arguable. Hastings is a chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, but he's not part of House GOP leadership structure below Boehner.
