I dont know the details of McGavick's DUI incident. Was it serious, or a minor incident like GWB had when they pulled that dirty trick on him days before the 2000 election?
In any case, WA seems to be moving so far to the left that I never had high hopes for this seat. I think the GOP has a better (if small) chance in MI, MN, MD, and NJ.
He was arrested but never charged.
