Steyer Sends $1 Million To Help Inslee And Desperate Dems

September 22, 2014 — WSRP Chairman Susan Hutchison issued the following statement today:

California billionaire Tom Steyer – a financially opportunistic environmental extremist – is attempting to buy our state’s elections again this year.  The latest PDC reports show that Steyer has just put $1,000,000 into his PAC, Next Gen Climate Action which is used to buy elections in Washington state.  Steyer’s agenda?  Helping Jay Inslee and the Democrats’ machine impose big increases in gasoline prices and job-killing regulations on the working people of our state.  The August primary results showed that the state Dems are in trouble.  They are desperate and panicking – and hoping Steyer can bail them out.  Outsider Steyer tried to buy our 2013 special election, pouring nearly $500,000 into an effort to defeat Jan Angel.  He failed in 2013, and he will fail again.

WE NEED YOU!  Please make a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more to send more Republicans to Olympia and block the radical California billionaire trying to defeat our candidates.

Only 7 Weeks To Election Day – You Will Make The Difference!

The future of our state depends on what you do in the next seven weeks.  It’s in your hands!

Please make a donation of $7, $25, $50, or more to help us elect Republican candidates to the State House and State Senate!

Will there be economic growth – or continued economic stagnation?  Will Inslee and the Democrats be able to impose a state income tax on the people of Washington – or will enough Republicans be elected to block the progressive agenda?  Will the Democrats’ neglect and mismanagement of education continue – or will enough Republicans be elected to reverse the decades of failed Democratic policy?  Will California billionaire Tom Steyer help Inslee achieve his goal of sharply increasing energy costs – or will enough Republicans be elected to thwart Steyer’s extreme environmentalist plans?

We are in a good position to increase our majority in the State Senate, and we have the opportunity to increase our presence in the State House for the fourth consecutive election. The momentum is shifting in our state – let’s keep the pressure on!

It is up to youplease make a donation of $7, $25, $50 or more to elect more Republicans, defeat more Democrats, and increase GOP presence in Olympia!

Dude, That Was Like 13 Years Ago.

September 11, 2014 – Statement by Washington State Republican Party Chairman Susan Hutchison

Dude, that was like 13 years ago.

Pardon my paraphrase of the crass dismissal of Benghazi spoken by an Obama official, but I use it to underscore the incompetent, dangerous, and disrespectful tone of the administration’s foreign policy – a mistaken foreign policy which haunts and angers us on this thirteenth anniversary of 9/11.  The sacrifice and loss suffered that day can never be fully articulated – but Americans understand and feel it.  Especially our honorable military men and women and their loved ones who have borne the devastating burden of the war being waged by Islamic radicals against us. Life-long injuries, multiple long deployments, broken families, and most of all, the loss of those who have paid the ultimate price.

“What difference, at this point, does it make?,” Hillary Clinton callously said when being questioned about Benghazi deaths that occurred 9/11 of election year 2012.  This is the mindset of the person the Democrats may very well choose to lead our country in 2016 – the person who defined the president’s foreign policy for four years!  What difference does it make, Madame Secretary?  As the wife of a Marine Corps husband who served in Iraq and led men who gave their lives in the service of our country, I am despairing of Obama’s policies – policies that have wasted the gains of that long, hard fought effort, and even now are risking more American lives.

What difference does it make?  President Lincoln understood that those who died should not die in vain. For the sake of all those who have laid so costly a sacrifice on the altar of freedom, at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, the field in Pennsylvania, the mountains of Afghanistan, the cities of Iraq, and in Benghazi, we as Republicans must provide strong, articulate, and experienced leadership to prevent a future defined by Islamic radicals and to defeat the wars they wage against American values and way of life.  On this 9/11 let’s dedicate ourselves to ensuring that our future is defined by the courage of leaders who will do what is necessary to defend America and to protect our freedom.
