To begin with I want everyone to know this the hardest topic I have ever written about. But after a lot of soul searching and prayer I decided I no choice but to write this.

All over the State of Washington on Saturday (Feb. 20), Republicans held their equivalent of the Iowa Caucuses – but with much different results. The average attendance at one of Iowa’s 1,687 caucuses in 2016 was over a hundred people.
We have no “official” reports in Washington, but based on our initial investigation the average number of people attending a Washington State GOP caucus in 2016 may have been 1. You read that correctly. One. Perhaps less. And the reasons are clear.(more…)

I moved here from southern California when I was 23 years old. Prior to that time I had no involvement in politics, other than being a big believer in President Reagan. What got me going was, my wife Michele was listing to a guy named Rush Limbaugh on the radio one day not to long after we moved here. In short, Rush really got me interested in politics.
My first experience in politics was in 1994 when Michele and I were living in Mt Vernon. That was when I had the good fortune of meeting Jason Vorva and Mark Hulst. (more…)

My response to Susan Hutchison’s defense of the Transportation Reform Package:
I think your note shows a fundamental fallacy you hold with regards to how government works. A fallacy that is rather surprising (and disturbing) coming from a Republican in a position of leadership. I’ll put it plainly. Government is incapable of creating a single job. (more…)

On Monday, May 19th, we discovered that at least three candidates for PCO had been filed against their will by a third party and a number of others had been filed without being present and without swearing their oath to uphold the Constitution.

So who is this fellow, and why would he take an interest in PCO races several counties away? (more…)

The Moats for Congress campaign on May 17, 2014 reasserted its intention of winning the Republican primary to be the the party’s standard bearer for the 1st Congressional seat despite the Washington State Republican Party Chairwoman Susan Hutchison publicly endorsing another candidate one day after the official filing period closed.
In Saturday’s Seattle Times, Hutchison endorsed Pedro Celis saying he can raise enough money for a credible campaign. Hutchison also said the party won’t endorse anyone in the primary for the 4th Congressional District.
