Bull Moose Party candidate in Wash. race
Theodore Roosevelt
YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - A candidate for the Washington state House in a Yakima-area district is running under the Bull Moose Party.

It was created by Teddy Roosevelt in 1912 after the Republican Party denied him a nomination for a second run at the presidency. The party dissolved in 1916.

Anthony Novack of Roslyn describes himself as an independent. He told the Yakima Herald-Republic he chose the Bull Moose Party because, "Teddy Roosevelt is about the most esteemed president I could think of."
