Former Redskins tight end Clint Didier, a member of the tea party, has announced his candidacy for the U.S. House seat being vacated by Doc Hastings (R-Wash.). Didier’s past attempts at political positions include a failed Senate campaign in 2010 and a losing race for Washington state land commissioner in 2012.
“You have seen my Senate run, you have seen my lands commissioner run and my message has not changed,” Didier said in a news conference. “It’s the same. We have to get government under control.”.
Didier has previously expressed skepticism over climate change, and has also accused some of President Obama’s appointees of having “communist ties,” the Seattle newspaper notes.
Quick everyone! To the comments!

Pretty sure he’s said this no less than 87 times in the last six months. But hey, awesome breaking news, ESPN.
