Retired Colonel To Oppose Metcalf

By From Staff And Wire Reports

Retired Army Col. Margarethe Cammermeyer has mailed her filing papers to the secretary of state and has opened a campaign office to take on Rep. Jack Metcalf in 1998 in Washington’s 2nd Congressional District.

Cammermeyer, 55, drew national attention by successfully fighting to stay in the Washington National Guard despite the military’s policy of discharging homosexuals.

Cammermeyer, a Democrat, said Monday she had opened her campaign headquarters in Langley, the Whidbey Island town where she lives.

Her early campaign entry against Republican Metcalf gives her time to raise cash and drum up support in a race bound to receive national attention, party activists said.
