Keith Swank, candidate for Washington’s 8th congressional District seat, will debut a new campaign ad July 2. The commercial will air in Eastern Washington, but Swank’s campaign is looking for donations to help the spot run in Western Washington.

The commercial describes Swank as a “family man, local cop and political outsider.” Swank bills himself as a Constitutional Conservative Republican candidate. He’s aiming to win Dave Reichert’s, R-Auburn, seat.

Swank is running in the 8th district, which now includes eastern counties Kittitas and Chelan after redistricting. Swank is a Seattle Police Officer and this is his first time running for office. The campaign needs to raise $5,000 to air the ad in Western Washington from July 2 up until the primary on August 7.

“Hey you big government politicians, I’m coming for you,” Swank says to the camera. “There’s a new sheriff in town.”
