A Talk with Joe Kent

A conversation with a candidate for Washington State's 3rd Congressional District (preview).

Joe Kent joins me for this episode of Discourses. He's a Republican running for office in Washington State's Third Congressional District. He's also a veteran, a father, widower, and a Gold Star husband.

Kent has been saying many things that break the mold of the typical veteran-turned-congressional candidate—and of the typical Republican generally. Kent, it seems to me, has been trying to think things through and think about things differently. His answers were frank and thoughtful and he came across as authentic. It wasn't hard to get him talking about the military, immigration, and the economy in a way that would make other Republicans squirm. These are very good signs, so I hope you’ll enjoy our talk. Kent’s Twitter is here, and his campaign website is here.

Below is a preview. The full audio and video recording are available here for subscribers.
