Rep. Ted Deutch, spelling master, vegan
U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch can spell well, just not "jambalaya."
The Florida Democrat was the top ranking lawmaker in the Politicians v. Press Spelling Bee yesterday at the National Press Club. Deutch made it to the 12th round before the slip-up, starting the word with a "g."
OK, I choked on the word jambalaya. Not surprising. Did I mention I'm a vegan? Fun night anyway! #NPCbee— Rep. Ted Deutch (@RepTedDeutch) September 22, 2016
The winner was Art Swift of Gallup won for the journalists by correctly spelling “apothecary."
