The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) has named my race as one of 16 “Top Races to Watch” in the nation!
The RSLC is the largest caucus of Republican state leaders in the country and the only national organization whose mission is to elect down-ballot, state-level Republican officeholders. Since 2002, the RSLC has been working to elect candidates to the offices of lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, state legislator, the judiciary and other down ticket races.
Folks, this couldn’t make it any more clear how important this race is for the 17th District, Clark County, Washington State, and dare I say, the Nation. The RSLC recognizes that it’s necessary to elect leaders who know how to create living wage jobs, leaders who will reduce job-killing regulations and taxes, and leaders who will represent the people and not big government special interests.
Frankly, the RSLC understands my race for State Senate could determine which party controls the Washington State Senate. If the Republicans lose the Senate, it will mean higher taxes, bigger government and more job-killing regulations.
I need your help! In the next few weeks, radical special interest groups from Seattle will begin dumping hundreds of thousands of dollars in attack ads against me. It’s going to take tremendous resources to win this battle and beat back these nasty attacks. Please consider donating to the campaign now so that we can meet the challenges ahead. Today I’m asking you to consider giving $20.16 to the campaign. 2016 is the year we stand united. Together we can make the 17th District Senate race a positive turning point in 2016.
