Brad Avakian to challenge David Wu for seat in Congress
Blood is in the water as far as David Wu's seat in Congress is concerned. Between his bizarre behavior (go get 'em, tiger) and allegations of drug abuse, it seems like many a local democrat with national aspirations are gunning for his seat. Brad Avakian, BOLI chief, has thrown his hat in, with other local dems expected to announce soon. Wu's popularity among the Westside Asian community is formidable, but Avakian has proven himself to be a popular candidate in state wide elections, and he has deep roots in Washington County.
