Location: Kent, Washington, United States

I was born in San Francisco and grew up in Anaheim. I really didn't have much interest in politics in those days.Other than Pres Reagan anyway.My wife turned me on to rush limbaugh and the rest as they say is history.Some Consider me a hard core conservative.I don't,yes I am a conseravtive but I'm more open minded than the hard core ones.For 10 years we lived in skagit county during that time I was a pco Area chair and county yr chairman.Since my wife and I moved to Kent almost 3 years ago the fargo precinct in the 47th district where we make our home has sat empty.Its been actually 5-6 years since its been vacant. The King Gop doesn't like me so empty the fargo precinct sits.

Its been an incredible five months and I am more convinced now that I have ever been

Good Evening,

Tonight I am in Clearfield,Utah as I write this.
Pretty soon we will all know if Mike McGavick is
the only republican candidate for US Senate.It will
be unfortunate if he is because I know we can do
better.The State Gop continues to unravel day after
day.Sadly even Dino Rossi appears to be part of
this mess.Lets face it they are in big trouble and the
excitement for Mike McGavick just isn't there.

I know it may sound hopeless but its not.There is
a light at the end of the tunnel.In fact its a very
bright one.Susan Hutchison has been shining that light
for quite sometime now.In the almost twelve years I
have been involved in Washington State politics never
before have I seen anything like this happen. The state
party establishment is scared to death of her and a whole
lot of party members are so excited over Susan possibly
running for this office.Even more so than Dino Rossi.

Even before I met Susan a little over five months ago I knew
she was the right person for this office.The fact
is I didn't think I could be anymore convinced.Well I was
wrong,As I have gotten to know Susan more its become very
clear to me what an amazing and special person she is.
Back at the end of November She was speaking to a republican
organization that is known for being probably the toughest
group to win over.What I observed that night really had
me in awe.Going in I knew Susan would do just fine.

What I didn't realize is how good she really is.Susan was
sensational.Never in a million years did I think anyone could win
that organization over the way she did.They have all strongly
committed to supporting her.I now know that given the opportunity
she can convince anyone to support her.Why? because Susan is real
what she says come from inside her.She really connects with people.
The republicans in this state need Susan Hutchison.When any of you
get the chance to hear her speak don't pass it up.

Well its been an amazing five months for me.The fact is its been
life changing.I am so honored to be able to know Susan and call
her a friend.This bares repeating, some of you have discarded me
and the blog since this all began.It doesn't matter because in my
heart I know Susan Hutchison is the right choice to be our next
senator.Susan I hope you run.

The Self Destruction of the Washington State Republican party

Good Evening,

It has been a couple weeks since are last update
So here we go. I have been involved in Washington
state politics for a while now twelve years
of political activism I have never seen anything
like this.The all out assault on Susan Hutchison
and her character is appalling.

Chris Vance and his establishment friends are so deep
in the tank for Mike McGavick that they are willing to
do anything to keep Susan Hutchison from running.
What is happening right before my eyes is the self
destruction of the Washington state republican
party.The message they are sending is if you want
to run for public office and we don't want you to
we will destroy you.

From the sneak attack back at the end of July on 570 kvi
to the attempts at intimidation By Chris Vance and his
cronies.They also have tried bribery and now they have
resorted to character assassination.Freddie Simpson's cheap
attempts to circumvent the process on behalf of the state
party is reprehensible.It seems Freddie has been quite
busy as of late. She has been traveling around the state
Visiting county party meetings and strongly encouraging
state committee members to support Mike McGavick and
in some cases saying untrue disparaging things about
Susan Hutchison.It is inapropriate for the State Vice
Chairwoman to be asking state committee members to
Support any candidate before a primary takes place.

To set the stage for what I am about tell all of
you.I have to go back to wednesday of this week.
That evening I was posting on Sound politics.
It was a column about Cantwell and McGavick.
I had posted a comment about McGavick and his
lack of candor on the issues.When know sooner
had I posted.That a person who indentified himself
as a member of the kitsap county GOP executive board
went after Susan.

The person then challenged me about Susan purposely
missing speaking engagements.My first response was
what are you talking about? Susan has done a number of
speeches over the past few months.I ended it by saying
Susan's job takes her out of the state every so often
so she cant be everywhere.

A short time later the person commented again saying
here are three key meetings Susan no showed.First it
was the fall State GOP meetings in yakima.Then she
confirmed speaking at the Washingon federation of
republican women's meeting last month in longview
and then didn't show up and the women at the meeting
felt slighted. The kitsap county chairman
was being pressured by the former chairperson of
kitsap county to back McGavick and wanted to here
from Susan before he did.I should like to point
out that the former chairperson of the kitsap GOP is now
McGavick's chairperson in kitsap county.Susan sent her
bio to the kitsap county chairman.Somehow or another
they missed connections but in know way did she snub
him or the county party.

Let Me first address the fall state GOP meetings in
Yakima.Susan was at the time returning from Washington
D.C.She told Chris Vance she would be unable to be there.
Vance of course has been shoveling this story about
asking Susan to speak at the fall meetings and she
just didnt show up.None of this is true,Vance invited
Susan to come and watch the proceedings.That was all
there was to it.

Now then as to the WFRW meeting of a few weeks ago.
Susan was invited to come speak but do to a previous
committment was not able to attend.This story that is
floating around out there that Susan confirmed that
she would be there and then no showed is a total fabrication
of what happened.This I believe was put out by the state
Gop as an attempt to sway the women vote in favor of McGavick.

The only person that has been straight with me about this
is the president of WFRW Jennifer Holder.She told me that
twice during the board meetings she told the crowd Susan
would not be able to attend.I want to thank Jennifer for her
candor in this matter

Well my friends this whole thing has been very eye opening
to me.To think that the state gop would do this to one of
there own is sad.Vance and the establishment have ran this
once great state party into the ground.I just have to wonder
what's next.
