Important Election “EVERY VOTE COUNTS”
THE 2018 ELECTION: Just 2 Years ago (local sources tell us) about 14,000 conservative voters in North County did not vote their ballot. The result was that all three conservative candidates lost in the Primary. The General Election in 2018 was one prime example of the old adage where “Every Vote Counts”. The results in November:
Sen. Doug Ericksen over Pinky Vargas by 45 votes and Rep. Luanne VanWerven won over Justin Boneau by 81 votes.
Around the rest of the state Conservatives stayed home and the resulting highly partisan State Legislature passed 18 Billion in new Taxes; even though tax collections were increasing without the additional taxes; as well as an unprecedented Sex Ed curriculum at the State Level for Kindergartners thru 12th grade.
For all Voters; this is not a time to stay at home. With COVID and Riots it is time for your voice to be heard… at the ballot box.
Can Jay Inslee receive less than 50% of the Governor Primary Vote?
Is it possible for an Incumbent Governor to get less than 50% of the vote in a voting Blue state like Washington? Maybe.
Remember that Jay Inslee’s Presidential aspirations garnered less than a percentage point in popular approval. And he spent millions getting that; including some state dollars.
His separation of essential and non-essential in the early days of the shutdown for COVID did not help with many of his voters.
His personal backing of the Seattle Mayor during the CHAZ crisis did not help him with many of his voters either.
There are 35 other names in the Gubernatorial race that think he can be beaten. Some of these present solid challenges to the Governor in the fall and have a chance to win; even with the splits between the anti-Trump “Mainstream” Republicans and the rest of the party.
Our take is that there are 4 major Republican candidates with a chance to win in November and the Primary and maybe 2 Republicans that would have an outside chance.
