The primaries are coming. Washington has “jungle” primaries which puts us in the position of having to not only get more votes than a competitor from the same party, but to also get more votes than the competitors from the opposite party.
The top two vote-getters in the primary will ascend to the election regardless of party affiliation. The Democrats will need to coalesce around a candidate for District 3 to insure that a Democrat is in the election, and wins, come November. We can’t get cute by trying to manipulate the Republican nominee.
The smart choice is Marie Gluesenkamp Perez. MGP has a clear vision of the trials facing Washingtonians of all stripes. She is on the correct side of the issues and is going to D.C. to fight for her District.
There is a lot of pending legislation that would be a boon to District 3 that is being held up by the Right. We need to send MGP to D.C. so that she can work on the committees and vote for the legislation that most affects us here at home.
Jaime Herrera Buetler has been a rubber stamp for the Republican/Trump agenda and her ONE foray into not bowing to the forces that be, have resulted in her being ostracized and pushed farther away from the center of power.
Joe Kent is running on his military affiliation and with the vindictive backing of Trump. We certainly don’t need an angry, ultra-right-winger representing us.
Mark MGP on your ballot when you send it back.
