Ex-NFL player Clint Didier to run for WA Congressional seat

The Associated PressFebruary 18, 2014 

Former professional football player Clint Didier says he’ll run for Congress.

Didier, a former tight end with the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers who ran unsuccessfully as a Republican for the Senate in 2010, announced Monday that he’ll seek the 4th District seat being vacated by Rep. Doc Hastings. The Republican Hastings said last week that he’ll retire at the end of the year after serving the sprawling district in Eastern and Central Washington for 20 years.

Didier said he would push for limited government.

In 2012, Didier also ran for Washington public lands commissioner, losing to Peter Goldmark. Didier was born into a farm family in Eltopia. He won two Super Bowl rings with the Redskins.
