This weekend I got to spend time in Bellingham, meeting with voters and sharing my vision for our state & nation.
Everywhere I go, I hear devastating stories about the impacts inflation & crime are having on Washington families.
The message is clear: it’s time for change.
Tonight marks the start of Rosh Hashanah. We wish all who celebrate a happy, healthy, and sweet new year!
This will only happen with a very different Legislature. https://twitter.com/EverettHerald/status/1574414239829299202
Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney is getting a lot of views on a new video in which he and a dozen local leaders call on state lawmakers to give police more help protecting the public, reports @dospueblos.
Joe Biden is a failed president and everybody knows it!
On the upcoming midterm elections, former top Biden spokeswoman Jen Psaki admits “if it is a referendum on the president, [Democrats] will lose.”
Let’s put some balance back in our WA state legislature so that we can give our law enforcement the support and tools they need to combat crime. #VoteRepublican https://twitter.com/WAStateHomicide/status/1574250354749079552

The Senate Republican Campaign Committee is dedicated solely to winning Republican races for the Washington State Senate.
Sen. Lynda Wilson: Costly new budget just signed by @GovInslee just made WA a more regressive place to live. People would have been far better off with the Republican approach…which offered tax relief, not new/higher taxes. #waleg #Washington #taxapalooza http://ow.ly/9vJ050EPQLJ
Jay Inslee on signing carbon legislation which has conservatively been estimated by respected consulting firms to raise the cost of gas by 95 cents/gal by 2028: “Don’t let anyone give you that swill that it is going to increase prices.” 2:07 pm 5/17/21 #waleg
And just like that, with a single-vote margin (25-24) and bipartisan opposition, an income tax passes off the Senate floor. Not an excise tax…an income tax. Something Washingtonians have voted down 10 times and still oppose according to a recent Elway Poll. #NoIncomeTax #waleg
For months conservatives have criticized WA Gov Inslee’s handling of the pandemic. But now even some Democrats are exasperated at the pace of reopening. As are some local officials.

Sen. Braun to Inslee: Time to take the fencing down. Read his letter to the governor: http://ow.ly/70RA50Drv74 #waleg #OpenSafeOpenNow
