BROWN EVADES CRUCIAL QUESTION
Continues to ignore important issues regarding Eastern WA
Bellevue, WA – Lisa Brown is continuing to deceive the voters of Eastern Washington, this time not coming clean about her support for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House.
“Lisa has been running a campaign of evasion and deceit that shows her contempt for the people of Eastern Washington,” said Caleb Heimlich, Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party. “She has repeatedly side-stepped crucial questions, including her stand on gun rights and hydro dams during this campaign in an attempt to disguise the fact that she is a far-left, liberal with one of the most extreme voting records in Washington state history. One of the most important votes a Member of Congress will take is the vote for Speaker of the House and Lisa Brown’s refusal to say whether she would vote for Nancy Pelosi is disgraceful. Based on her legislative record, if she doesn’t vote for Nancy Pelosi, it will only be because Pelosi is too conservative for her.” Heimlich continued.
In a recent ABC News interview, Brown responded to the question about voting for Pelosi for Speaker in her typical evasive fashion saying, “I’m going to wait and see, hopefully in January when I’m there, I’m going to wait and see who is running for leadership. I will vote for the person who I think I could most work with on behalf of Eastern Washington.”
