WSRP Statement On Upcoming Vacant Secretary Of State Office
BELLEVUE — The Washington State Republican Party (WSRP) issued the following statement today, in response to the upcoming Secretary of State of Washington vacancy:
“We thank Secretary of State Wyman for her decades of work in elections and service to the people of Washington State,” said WSRP Chairman Caleb Heimlich.
“Today’s news is disappointing as it is a real loss for the people of Washington State who just last November voted for her to lead our elections. I call on Governor Inslee to listen to the will of the voters and appoint a Republican to serve as Secretary of State until a general election can occur. A Republican has held this position since 1965 and our election system is better off because of those decades of leadership. If Governor Inslee cares about the trust and integrity of our electoral process he should appoint a capable Republican just as the voters did in November of 2020.”
