Stand For Children and their checkbook had devastating consequences in the 2016 Primary in the First Legislative District in Washington State.
Supporting Stand For Children’s “democratic” candidate because Democrats feel they need to “save the seat for Democrats”is a forgone conclusion
First LD Democrats need to wise up to the fact we that lost seat when Palumbo advanced to the General- with Stand For Children pulling his leash.
I’ve been told that the Republican Party considers the seat “won” No matter who wins the seat in the First LD General.
Part of that certainty, I’ve been told from reliable sources, came from Palumbo himself.
I supported and endorsed a Republican, (Mindie Wirth)for this seat because she ran a clean, open and honest campaign.
Guy Palumbo did NONE of those things.
Mindie did- she has been honest about her positions and who she is since she began her campaign
I could have cast my vote silently for Mindie, or been a party person and voted for Palumbo or silently no voted and took it for the team.
However, I know that Mindie will put the First above Party…and in turn I felt I confident I could reach across part lines to support her.
Please consider doing the same.
