Where Washington State Republicans Need to Focus in the Mid-Terms

public domain

The train wreck that was the 2018 Washington State legislative session finally adjourned last week. Thank God.

Barf Alert

I’ve heard a lot of huffing and puffing about the Leftista-leaning legislation Democrat majorities predictably ram-rodded through Olympia this year. If I hear any more, I’m going to barf. Cuz here’s the deal, peeps: Next year will be more of the same – or worse – unless Republicans “belly up to the bar” and get majorities.

I’ve also heard that Washington State Big Government, Cradle-to-Grave Nanny State Socialists … er… Democrats (sorry, Freudian slip) are running candidates for every state office.

Oh, really? 

A friend sent me the following. He took the time to actually look at who’s filed with the PDC. (If anyone is already running, they must have filed within two weeks of publicly revealing they are running.)

He found where we’re being lied to and where we need good Republican candidates. How does your district stack up?
