Event, hosted by Patriots United, drew a crowd of just over 500
Third Congressional District candidate for U.S. Representative Joe Kent wanted to make one thing clear when he addressed a crowd of more than 500 that gathered Thursday evening for the Patriots United election integrity and transparency event held at the RV Inn Style Resorts Convention Center in Vancouver.
“The clear message that we sent to the establishment, to Washington DC and really to the entire country, is that Washington’s Third Congressional District – that is a stone’s throw away from Portland, that is right next to Seattle, that touches the Pacific Ocean – is not just Republican, not just conservative. We are deep red MAGA country,’’ Kent said in front of the approving crowd.
Kent, defeated a field of fellow conservatives to advance to the Nov. 8 general election, where he will face Democrat Marie Gluesenkamp Perez, was referring to the Make America Great Again slogan popularized by former President Donald Trump and that still continues to be a rallying cry for many conservative Republicans.
Kent said that he and his fellow Third Congressional District Republican candidates – Heidi St. John and Vicki Kraft – found common ground on the primary campaign trail on the issue of election integrity.
“We didn’t back down from it,’’ Kent said. “I get asked all the time by journalists who say, ‘hey, do you really want to discuss polarizing things like election integrity?’ And I say, it’s actually polarizing to not discuss election integrity, because without election integrity, we have absolutely nothing.’’
Kent believes it’s the issue that will unify the Republican Party.
“We’re gonna unify the party, I couldn’t be more appreciative of the process,’’ Kent said. “We went through this long, brutal, hard fought primary. I couldn’t be more grateful to Heidi St. John, her supporters, the way that she sent out that unity message to really get us geared up for the general election. That’s what we need. That’s what I’m feeling really right now throughout the entire district, because we know what the stakes are.
“The Democrats are running on this very far left program,’’ Kent added. “They want sky high inflation, they want crime at our doorsteps, and they want to continue this scam of mass mail out ballots, closed code, tabulation machines, everything we’re going to hear about how dangerous it is tonight. That’s what they’re running on. There’s no more moderates in the Democrat party. That’s what they’re trying to do.’’
Kent added his support for Clark County Auditor candidate Brett Simpson, who was also in attendance at Thursday’s event. Simpson is facing Clark County Auditor Greg Kimsey in the November general election.
“We’re going to get Brett elected, we are going to win at the local levels and at the national level, and we’re going to take our country back,’’ Kent stated. “I want to unify the party.
“I’m honored to be the nominee for Congress to represent all of you and honored to be a part of this movement,’’ Kent said. “Let’s Make America Great Again.’’
Thursday’s event featured three guest speakers, who focused on the issue of election integrity and transparency.
Here is an introduction of those speakers along with a video link to each presentation:
