Delays 2017 and refuses to release 2016 tax returns

Bellevue, WA – Lisa Brown is hiding from voters in Eastern Washington, this time, refusing to release her 2016 tax returns and delaying the release of her 2017 returns.

“Why won’t Lisa Brown give the voters the information they deserve?” stated Caleb Heimlich, Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party. “She claims to support Eastern Washington, but is denying transparency to voters by delaying her 2017 return and refusing to release her 2016 return – is she embarrassed she was collecting a $365,000 per year salary at WSU after her massive tuition increases that hurt students?” Heimlich continued.

Unlike Lisa Brown, Cathy McMorris Rodgers has fully released her 2016 and 2017 tax returns to the Spokesman Review.

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.”

Introducing Chairman Caleb Heimlich

Fellow Republicans,

As the new Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party, I want to introduce myself and say thank you for all that you have done to support the party and our great candidates over the years.

As someone born and raised in Washington State, this is a proud day for me to step into leadership and work to do great things for our state.

The State Republican Party is very healthy and in a great position for victories in 2018 thanks to your commitment and the leadership of our former Chairman, Susan Hutchison. Susan and I worked together for the past five years to build this party and win races. In recognition of her leadership, the state committee designated her Chairman Emeritus. I am excited to continue our momentum and build on our successes.

As we move forward to 2018, we must keep working together to elect Dino Rossi and re-elect our great members of Congress Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Jaime Herrera Beutler, and Dan Newhouse. We have an opportunity to win majorities in both the State House and State Senate. The Democrats first move with the majority was to make it easier to raise taxes, and now they are trying to pass a regressive energy tax that will punish working Washingtonians.

In order to achieve these victories we must work together and spread the message of what Republican leadership means for the voters of our state.

I am excited to continue working with you as we seek to implement good policies.
Looking forward,

Caleb Heimlich

Millennial to become GOP Leader

Dear Friends,

I want to welcome Caleb Heimlich as the next Chairman of the WSRP!

Caleb is well-known to many because he has served as Executive Director of the State Party for the past 5 years. He has been my right hand in everything we have accomplished to strengthen and grow the GOP, so he is well-prepared to move the WSRP forward. He is a man of intelligence and integrity–respected by all who know him.

By electing a “Millennial” the State Party reflects the growing number of young men and women who are stepping up to leadership in the Republican Party.  2018 will be an exciting year for us as our next Chairman works with legislators, candidates and voters to win more elections.

Your WSRP is united, focused and financially healthy.  I will be stepping down on February 4th and I couldn’t be happier to pass the gavel to Caleb Heimlich.  I know you will support him as you have supported me!
