Police guild endorses Tucker rival

The Spokesman-Review
The Spokane Police Guild has endorsed attorney Chris Bugbee in his bid to unseat his former boss, Spokane County Prosecutor Steve Tucker. Bugbee learned of the endorsement by a letter sent by the guild’s president, Ernie Wuthrich, according to a campaign news release. The Spokane County Republican Party has endorsed David Stevens. Also in the race are Democrat Frank Malone and Deputy Kootenai County Prosecutor Jim Reierson, who according to campaign documents is running on what he called the Law & Order party. The police guild endorsement gives Bugbee’s campaign a big boost, Bugbee said. Bugbee is expected to file by Friday’s deadline for the Aug. 17 primary election. “The support of a police guild for a criminal defense lawyer shows that my judgment is very well respected,” Bugbee said.
