WASHINGTON — The Associated Press reported today that they will have a news announcement later in the week, citing unnamed sources.
A Republican official, on condition of anonymity, says the Party plans to field a candidate to enter the Washington state Senate race against an unnamed Democratic opponent sometime prior to the August 17 primary.
The official spoke on Monday to discuss private campaign plans for Wednesday.
The official noted that the Democrats have been openly critical of GOP candidates in hopes of keeping them from winning by the time they officially file for office.
Complicating the effort of GOP Party officials has been the wide consideration by grassroots activists of actual candidates showing up at forums and answering questions in defiance of the party’s vacuity policy.
