WSRP Statement on Governor Jay Inslee’s Installation as Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association

 

Bellevue, WA — Washington State Republican Party Chairman Susan Hutchison issued the following statement on Governor Jay Inslee’s installation as the new Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association today:

“It’s no surprise that a party in disarray would install Governor Jay Inslee as its Chairman. Inslee’s reputation in Washington State as the governor who can’t govern will not instill confidence in Democrat donors or bring back traditional Democrats who’ve left a party that no longer cares about their families, jobs, or futures. Inspired by the left wing Seattle echo chamber of big government socialism, he is not the kind of leader the rest of America can accept. Even so, Inslee is using this platform to help him run for President in 2020.”

Bring It On, Democrats

Despite our loss in the 45th Legislative District, I am hopeful as we go forward into 2018!  No matter what you hear from the media, we have a very positive view of 2018.

To sum it up, Tuesday was a status quo election. Democrats won in democrat districts, and Republicans held four special election seats in the State House and Senate. Congratulations to Shelly Short, Jacquelin Maycumber, Phil Fortunato, and Morgan Irwin who are currently leading their Democrat opponents by exceptionally wide margins. 

Washington’s 45th LD is a Democrat district as 2016 proved with Hillary Clinton’s 65%. Jinyoung Englund has tremendous potential and ran an honorable campaign. However, swing Democrats did not cross party lines as they had for the late incumbent Republican Senator Andy Hill. Jinyoung and all Republicans who fought hard for this seat honored the legacy of Andy Hill by trying to maintain balance in the state legislature as he would have desired. 

If the Democrats are smart they will keep a guiding hand on our very left-wing Governor and steward the state’s budget to fund what the voters want: jobs growth throughout the state, better educations for our kids, and alleviation of traffic gridlock. But, if Democrats are true to form, they will raise taxes on working families, reroute money away from education and pander to their special interests. If they do, 2018 will be a very good year for Republicans, and the GOP will flip seats in the State House to gain the majority there. In addition, despite efforts by the Democrat “Resistance”, the 8th Congressional District will remain in Republican hands with the election of Dino Rossi.

Anyone who calls this election a “blue wall” does not understand the demographics of this state. Washington is a swing state which for half a decade has swung a net of six legislative seats into the red column. Republican Kim Wyman is the most popular elected official in the state and wins by wide margins in 36 out of 39 counties.

As for 2018, we say to the Democrats “bring it on.”

Bob Ferguson Wants Attention

Our on-going alerts, DEMS! (Distinctly Embarrassing Moments for Seattle!), highlight the many ways one-party Democrat rule in Seattle has hurt the reputation of the city and our state. 

AG Bob Ferguson files his 17th LAWSUIT against the Trump administration using our money!

The life-long Seattle politician’s lawsuit against Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos comes four days after he railed against school choice at a protest organized by the WEA.

17 lawsuits in 9 months? Is this normal behavior for state attorneys general? Not unless you’re an attention-getter using your elected position to launch your gubernatorial campaign. In this latest display, it’s clear that Ferguson cares most about gaining approval from Seattle’s left-wing voters.

Ferguson’s lawsuits against the President’s agenda is a waste of taxpayers’ money for personal political gain. 

It also proves that the Democrats are already gearing up for 2020, so it’s time to start building up our volunteer army! Click here to join us.

Be Un-Republican!

We Republicans don’t protest march, shout down free speech or riot like the Democrats do. But tomorrow we need to be COUNTER PROTESTORS on two important justice issues:

King County Courtroom Battle Against Voting on I-27 (Banning Heroin Injection Sites): 

Seattle and the ACLU are protesting I-27 insisting that citizens be denied voting on public health issues. We must counter-protest this outrage which would deny our constitutional right to initiative. Polls show that citizens overwhelmingly reject heroin injection sites as a danger to society. Unlike the City of Seattle, we want compassionate solutions to TREAT the opioid addiction epidemic.

Where: King County Superior Court (516 3rd Ave, Seattle Room W764) with Judge Veronica Galvin

When: 10/13/17 at 10am

Please Note: Wear baseball caps to be identified as pro-I-27

 

WEA Protest Against Education Secretary Betsy DeVos:

Union-funded protestors will be out in force tomorrow night to stop attendees at the Washington Policy Center dinner from hearing Betsy DeVos, a champion of charter schools and school choice. We must counter-protest in favor of our urban minority students who excel when given quality educations in charter schools. The hypocritical left fights school choice on behalf of the WEA, against our kids.

Where: Meet at Bellevue Library (1111 110th Ave. NE), then march to Hyatt Regency Bellevue (900 Bellevue Way NE)
When: 10/13/17 at 4:30pm (WPC Dinner held 6pm-9pm)

Please Note: Bring appropriate pro-school choice signs

 

Thank you for getting involved and fighting the good fight as Republicans can do!
