Yesterday Washington State Republican Party Chair Susan Hutchison sent out a surprising mass email. The entire message, except for one sentence, urged the State’s Democrats to turn out and vote in the upcoming primary!!
It begs even more surprising conclusions.
Here, except for the Republican sentence, is Susan’s letter (emphases added):
Some Washington Democrats are “steaming mad” about their party’s presidential nomination process, according to a report in the Seattle Times. According to the Times, many are “angry at the antiquated caucus process. Some called for ending the caucuses system in favor of using the presidential Primary to allocate delegates – as Washington Republicans are doing this year.”
The state Democratic Party machine plans to ignore the vote of the people in the May 24 Democrat Presidential Primary. But Democrat voters can send a forceful message by voting in the May 24 Democratic Presidential Primary.
Bernie Sanders supporters who think the super-delegates system is wrong by ignoring the grassroots can send a message to the Democrat elites by voting on May 24. If Sanders wins the Primary, will the super-delegates still ignore the voters?
Hillary Clinton supporters who think the caucus system is unrepresentative, discriminatory, and antiquated can send a message to Jaxon Ravens and other party leaders by voting onMay 24. Would the Clinton victory in the Primary show the caucus system doesn’t represent the will of the majority of state Democrats?
Last July Democrats played politics: trying to destroy the state Primary by refusing to move it earlier in the season. Now they have angry voters who are denied a voice in the selection of their nominee.

The message is clear. Bernie’s voters have done their job by turning out at the Party caucuses to secure Bernie’s delegates by an overwhelming margin.
But now Hillary’s voters can do even better by writing in Hillary — to be the Republican nominee — and send Washington State’s Republican delegates to the National Convention for HILLARY!!
If Trump can’t get a first ballot majority, Hillary could get the GOP nomination! If she also gets the Democrat’s nomination the election will be over by July.
