NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers’ Statement On Congressman Dave Reichert’s Retirement

September 6, 2017

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Steve Stivers released the following statement regarding WA-08 Congressman Dave Reichert’s retirement announcement:  

“Dave Reichert is a valued voice whose unique perspective serving as King County Sheriff before coming to Congress will be missed within our House Republican Conference,” said NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers.

“Nonetheless, Washington’s Eighth District is a seat that has chosen Republicans for over a decade. With a bitter and expensive primary fight already confronting Democrats in this seat, Republicans are ready to elect another common-sense congressman like Dave Reichert, not another rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi.”
