Memorial Day Message

BELLEVUE, WA, May 30 – Susan Hutchison, the Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party, issued the following Memorial Day message:

“What solemn pride must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.”
-Abraham Lincoln

The white gravestones at Arlington, Honolulu, Normandy, Italy, Belgium, Philippines, and more–remind us that our precious freedoms were bought at a great price. Today, we remember the honored dead whose work is done, because our work is still before us…

“that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain… that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom… and that government of the people… by the people… for the people… shall not perish from the earth.”
-Lincoln at Gettysburg

Partisan Democrat Tim Probst Fails to Disclose Financial Affairs

The Washington State Republican Party issued the following statement today:

Vancouver – After more than four months of running for the State Senate, Tim Probst has failed to file his personal financial affairs statement as required by state law.

State law requires candidates to file their personal financial affairs statement within two weeks of becoming a candidate.

“Why is partisan Democrat Tim Probst trying to hide his six-figure government paycheck from the voters?” asked WSRP Chair Susan Hutchison. “State law requires candidates to disclose their financial affairs to avoid conflicts of interest. What else is Tim Probst trying to hide?”

Public records show Tim Probst has received more than $750,000 in taxpayer funded salary, benefits, office expenses, per diem and travel.

After losing his last campaign for the State Senate in 2012, the Democrat Party establishment rewarded Probst with a six-figure job with the Employment Security Department.

“Tim Probst is a career politician now running for office for the fourth time. He knows the law. He knows the rules. There’s no excuse for not disclosing his financial affairs,” said Hutchison. “After 20 plus years in and around government, Tim Probst has changed. He’s not who he says he is.”

Hutchison: “WA ready to swing to the GOP column in November”

State GOP Chairman Susan Hutchison issued the following statement this evening:

“Tonight’s unprecedented turnout, shows that our state is a true swing state and ready to swing to the Republican column in November.

“With 76% of the vote going to Donald Trump, our state has moved the GOP presumptive nominee closer to the 1,237 delegates he needs to clinch the nomination.  With a strong candidate at the top of the GOP ticket, Jay Inslee and other Democrats will be at a disadvantage, while Republican candidates for statewide and legislative offices will be given a boost.

“The Democrats, on the other hand, are in a heap of trouble.

“With Clinton defeating Sanders in the Democrat primary, it is clear that the Democrats’ antiquated caucus system is out of step with the voters.  Democrat voters support Clinton, but their delegation to the Democrat national convention will be heavily in favor of Sanders.  No wonder the State Democratic Party wanted to suppress the vote and ignore the primary.

“Republicans respect the vote of the people – our state’s delegation to the Republican National Convention will be bound by tonight’s results.”

Kim Wyman’s leftist opponent wants to suppress the vote!

Kim Wyman, our state’s most popular elected official is under attack from her millionaire, far left opponent Tina Podlodowski.

While Kim recovers from shoulder surgery, let’s wish her a speedy “Get Well” and remind ourselves and others how dangerous Podlodowski really is.

Podlodowski wants automatic voter registration for all people in the state – regardless of their legal status.

And Podlodowski announced last week she would cancel the Primary in which the voters of the state, Republicans and Democrats, have a voice in the nomination of their Presidential Candidate!  The head of elections cancelling the very institution she is pledged to uphold?

Podlodowski’s campaign website proclaims the slogan  “We want to hear from you.  Every voice, and every vote, must count. But too many voices go unheard.”  What a hypocrite!

Like all far left politicians, Podlodowski is obsessed with suppressing the vote of anyone who disagrees with her(*) Her loud-mouth proclamations are not only illegal, but dangerous.

Of course, we Republicans gladly hold our caucuses to pick our delegates to convention, but the number of voters that can show up at a Saturday morning meeting with their neighbors is a tiny fraction of the total vote.

The Democrats love their caucus for one reason only — to control the vote.  

Let’s declare loud and clear that we won’t let a candidate like Tina Podlodowski take away our sacred elections.  Go to Kim Wyman’s website today and make a contribution to her campaign – CLICK HERE

And while you’re at it, make a contribution to the WSRP so that we can fund the ground game that will help Kim get re-elected! – CLICK HERE

(*) P.S.: Tina Podlodowski also can’t tolerate disagreement on social media.  On Twitter, she blocks those who criticize her attempts at voter suppression.  Her Twitter handle is @tinapo
