Goldendale, WA— Today, Klickitat County Constitutional Sheriff Bob Songer endorsed Joe Kent for Washington’s Third Congressional District.

Sheriff Songer made the following statement:

Joe Kent has my full support to be our congressman in Washington’s Third Congressional District. I have been extremely impressed with Joe’s background and his knowledge of the issues – especially those close to my heart defending the First and Second Amendments. Joe recognizes the threats facing our nation. He’s a true patriot that will stand with us to fight back. Joe served in the Army for twenty years, including in the Special Forces. During his eleven combat deployments and his work for the CIA, Joe saw the threats our nation faces. Serving as an advisor to the Trump Administration on national security, Joe gave our soldiers a voice in D.C. I am proud to endorse Joe Kent for Congress.

Candidate Joe Kent made the following statement:

          Throughout his fifty-one year career in law enforcement, Sheriff Songer has upheld the Constitution, protected our communities, and made us safe.  Spending over 60 years of his life in Washington, Sheriff Songer is a well-respected member of our community who has demonstrated a lifetime of service.  He joined the Air Force straight out of high school before he began his law enforcement service. He stood up for our Constitutional Rights in 2018 when he fought against the I-1639 anti-gun law. Songer was consequently awarded the National Constitutional Sheriff of the Year Award in 2019. I’m honored to receive Sheriff Songer’s endorsement and look forward to earning the support of the voters throughout the Third District.

Sheriff Songer and Candidate Joe are both available for interviews. If interested, please email Byron Sanford at or via cell at 360.798.4908.
