Blakely Hall to meet Mullet, who is challenging Republican Cheryl Pflug for the position. Mullet says that he is a fiscal Conservative and a social Liberal making him a good fit for the 5th As the owner of two local franchise's, Ben And Jerry's and Zeke's Pizza, he has a good understanding of what it takes to run a small business.
The 5th district has been represented solely by Republicans since Democratic Senator Katherine Drew was defeated in 1996 by Dino Rossi. Rossi at the time became the rising star in his party. No doubt, if Mullet can defeat Senator Pflug, he would be a candidate to watch in the Democratic Party.
