A former NFL champion announces today he will run for the 4th Congressional seat to be vacated by Rep. Doc Hastings.

Clint Didier said he has received an overwhelming amount of support from people throughout the state encouraging him to run to take Hastings' spot.

Didier compared himself to our founding fathers, saying they were farmers just like he is.

He said he's not happy with where the goverment is now and hopes to change things.

"You have seen my Senatorial run, you have seen my lands commissioner run and my message is not changing, it's the same. We have to get government under control," said Didier.

When pressed by the media about what platforms he plans for run on, Didier said he is yet to annouce the issues he wants to address.

Didier ran in the 2010 U.S. Senate Race against Sen. Patty Murray.

In that race, he was endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, getting 12% of the vote.

In 2012, Didier also ran for Washington Public Lands Commissioner, losing to Peter Goldmark.

Didier was born into a farm family in Eltopia, Washington.

He played for the NFL, winning two Super Bowl rings with the Washington Redskins.
