What is the official WSRP position on LT Governor? What are reasons and strategies for further distancing Republican candidates and votes? Nothing was said about supporting a write in for this office. It would be very prudent to address it.

What’s the plan by WSRP now that the primaries are over?

In the Governor’s race, what is the WSRP now doing to support the Republican candidate, Loren Culp? I haven’t heard or seen any media advertising, and no support offered to Mr. Culp by Mr. Freed, Mr. Eyeman, Mr. Fortunato, and Dr. Garcia (all good candidates). If we’re going to drop-kick Jay Inslee, we need to have action NOW!

Same way goes for Jesse Jensen in the 8th District. If we’re going to drop-kick Kim Schreier, we need to have some action, advertising, etc. NOW! (I heard Jesse Jenson’s name in the spring, but didn’t hear or receive any advertising until the Saturday right before the Tuesday primary. By then I’d cast my ballot for another candidate whose advertising I DID hear).

So it’s imperative that the WSRP gets their act together and supports these candidates in these very very important races and SOON!. Let’s see what the WSRP is all about.

Caleb, thanks for the update but nothing was said on your video about the Lt. Governor position. What’s with that? We have so little time to write-in an acceptable Republican candidate. There’s a lot of chatter and momentum that I see for Joshua Freed. The state Republican party backed him for his running for governor, correct? Why not transfer that same support for a historic run for lt. Governor? It could work!
I heard about Susan Hutchison as a write-in but the younger generation right now that is waking up to the importance of voting are presenting themselves as being acquainted with Joshua Freed. We already have momentum there. When will we hear who the WSRP will endorse for that position?

Thank you for your dedication and direction in this election cycle. WRT the LtGov position, shouldn’t we as the WSRP encourage everyone to use the write in line….and specify who we endorse to be written in?
I know Tim Eyman has withdrawn and Bill Bruch has suggested Josh Freed or Susan Hutchison. I didn’t know Susan was interested, but would certainly support her as the write in candidate if she chooses. Otherwise, we ought to endorse Josh Freed as the write in candidate.

Congratulations Republican candidates. Some of you got my vote in the primary, some didn’t but you are ALL my votes now. I am proud of all of you. This state has gone MAD!!! Let’s fix our home! Let’s turn WA Red!!!

Are you familiar with how Kim Shrier won and Rossi lost? It’s the same heartbreaking story of suddenly discovering “late ballots” that tipped the election towards Shrier. So it’s NOT ENOUGH to get out the vote. You must put election integrity measures in place – at the polls but most especially, at the Counting!!! Otherwise, our GOP voters will have accomplished nothing, our enthusiasm for reform in Olympia will be laughable if our votes are discounted by “sudden” discoveries of “late” ballots!!!
