Art Coday, a Shoreline Republican who lost a bid for 32nd District state representative in 2010, has announced a campaign against Democratic U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell.
Coday announced his candidacy Tuesday for the seat that Cantwell has held for two six-year terms. He is a primary-care physician who treats mostly Medicare, Medicaid and uninsured patients. He said in a press release that the federal health-care law would hurt programs for the elderly, the disabled and the poor.
He said that he stands for traditional American values, and he criticized Cantwell's support for abortion rights, gun control and environmental policies that he says hurt efforts to develop American energy independence.
Coday is the second Republican to register for the position with the Federal Elections Commission. The first one to announce was state Sen. Michael Baumgartner of Spokane. Also in the race are Cantwell and third-party candidate Max Englerius.
Registration with the FEC allows a candidate to raise and spend money for the August primary and November general election. Candidates file for ballot positions May 14-18.
Coday starts his campaign with $6,690 raised. Baumgartner of Spokane has reported raising $122,756. Englerius, who lists his affiliation as the American Tradition Party, reports no fundraising or spending. Cantwell reports raising $5.49 million.
The top two vote getters in the August primary advance to the Nov. 6 general election.
Coday had announced a run against U.S. Sen. Patty Murray in 2010 before filing instead for an open 32nd District State House of Representatives seat. Democrat Cindy Ryu defeated him 61 percent to 39 percent in the general election.
