Choose your Democratic candidate for Congress!
Starting this weekend, Democrats across the 5th District will caucus to begin the process of choosing the nominee who will challenge Tom Garrett in November. Leslie Cockburn, Ben Cullop, Roger Dean Huffstetler, and Andrew Sneathern would each be infinitely better at representing the 5th District than Garrett.
