Chairman Hutchison Passes the Gavel
Friends,

When I was elected Chairman almost five years ago, I was told it was a “thankless” job.  But ever since announcing I am stepping down,  you have overwhelmed me with your thanks!

Now, please allow me to turn it around and thank YOU!

To our VOTERS across the state, thank you for electing great Republicans into office!

To our ELECTED OFFICIALS, thank you for working so hard to improve the lives of all citizens!

To our DONORS, thank you for helping us raise $10 million to support the election battles we’ve fought for 5 years!

To our 117 STATE GOP COMMITTEE MEMBERS from every county, thank you for thoughtfully governing our Party and staying focused on winning!

To my fellow RNC MEMBERS, thank you for your partnership in fighting the good fight in all 50 states!

To my WSRP staff, thank you for your hard work, humor and hope which gave me daily joy!

And I thank you, gracious God for giving all of us this important work and the strength to carry on.

Today, I pass the gavel to a capable new Chairman, Caleb Heimlich, who will take this healthy Party successfully into the future.  Please support him as you have supported me.  I sign off with great optimism…

Looking forward,


Susan Hutchison
Chairman, Washington State Republican Party

Caleb Heimlich: New WSRP Chairman

Introducing Chairman Caleb Heimlich

Fellow Republicans,

As the new Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party, I want to introduce myself and say thank you for all that you have done to support the party and our great candidates over the years.

As someone born and raised in Washington State, this is a proud day for me to step into leadership and work to do great things for our state.

The State Republican Party is very healthy and in a great position for victories in 2018 thanks to your commitment and the leadership of our former Chairman, Susan Hutchison. Susan and I worked together for the past five years to build this party and win races. In recognition of her leadership, the state committee designated her Chairman Emeritus.  I am excited to continue our momentum and build on our successes.

As we move forward to 2018, we must keep working together to elect Dino Rossi and re-elect our great members of Congress Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Jaime Hererra Beutler, and Dan Newhouse. We have an opportunity to win majorities in both the State House and State Senate. The Democrats first move with the majority was to make it easier to raise taxes, and now they are trying to pass a regressive energy tax that will punish working Washingtonians.

In order to achieve these victories we must work together and spread the message of what Republican leadership means for the voters of our state.

I am excited to continue working with you as we seek to implement good policies.

Looking forward,

Caleb Heimlich
Chairman

Jinyoung Englund on electoral defeat

posted in: WSRP | 0

We received the following update from the Englund campaign in the 45th District for state senate on Nov 10, 2017. I expect we will hear her name again in our state.

 

Jinyoung Englund for State Senate
Team,

From the beginning, we knew we were the underdogs.

And yet, you all still said YES to the call to serve a purpose higher than self. That purpose was a balance of power in our state and honoring the legacy of the late Senator Andy Hill.

Our movement was one born out of conviction — that we could not allow Andy’s spirit of bipartisan cooperation to die with him.

I want each of you to remember that when faced with a challenge worth fighting for, you understood that the reward of saying YES was greater than the regret of saying NO. 

6 ½ months ago, we hit the ground running and put up a fight. Today, that journey comes to an end.

Earlier today, I called my opponent to congratulate her and share my hope that she will be a voice that represents all of us in the 45th Legislative District.

In life, it is impossible to win them all. But if you’re going to fail, in the words of President Roosevelt, you might as well “fail while daring greatly” and that is what we did. 

I am thankful for and proud of each and every one of you for having the courage to say YES with me.

Great friendships are formed in the crucible of campaigns, and ours is no exception. To me, we are and always will be the Fighting 45th. And I would not trade the experiences we’ve shared these last several months for anything.

So thank you again. Thank you for believing in me, believing in us, and doing it for Andy.

Sincerely,


Jinyoung Lee Englund

We have big plans for 2018

Dear Fellow Republicans,

Despite our loss in the 45th Legislative District, I am hopeful as we go forward into 2018!  No matter what you hear from the media, we have a very positive view of 2018.

To sum it up, Tuesday was a status quo election. Democrats won in democrat districts, and Republicans held four special election seats in the State House and Senate. Congratulations to Shelly Short, Jacquelin Maycumber, Phil Fortunato, and Morgan Irwin who are currently leading their Democrat opponents by exceptionally wide margins. 

Washington’s 45th LD is a Democrat district as 2016 proved with Hillary Clinton’s 65%. Jinyoung Englund has tremendous potential and ran an honorable campaign. However, swing Democrats did not cross party lines as they had for the late incumbent Republican Senator Andy Hill.Jinyoung and all Republicans who fought hard for this seat honored the legacy of Andy Hill by trying to maintain balance in the state legislature as he would have desired. 

If the Democrats are smart they will keep a guiding hand on our very left-wing Governor and steward the state’s budget to fund what the voters want: jobs growth throughout the state, better educations for our kids, and alleviation of traffic gridlock. But, if Democrats are true to form, they will raise taxes on working families, reroute money away from education and pander to their special interests. If they do, 2018 will be a very good year for Republicans, and the GOP will flip seats in the State House to gain the majority there. In addition, despite efforts by the Democrat “Resistance”, the 8th Congressional District will remain in Republican hands with the election of Dino Rossi.

Anyone who calls this election a “blue wall” does not understand the demographics of this state. Washington is a swing state which for half a decade has swung a net of six legislative seats into the red column. Republican Kim Wyman is the most popular elected official in the state and wins by wide margins in 36 out of 39 counties.

As for 2018, we say to the Democrats “bring it on.” 

Respectfully,


Susan Hutchison
Chairman, Washington State Republican Party

Jinyoung Englund earns endorsement of The Seattle Times

Jinyoung Englund earns endorsement of The Seattle Times

Woodinville, WA — Earlier today, The Seattle Times Editorial Board endorsed Jinyoung Englund for 45th legislative district senate race. The Seattle Times is the largest-circulation daily newspaper in the state of Washington, and has the largest Sunday circulation in the Pacific Northwest.

In their endorsement, the Times noted “Voters in the 45th Legislative District should elect Jinyoung Lee Englund to the state Senate to preserve a balance of power between Democratic and Republican control in state government.”

Englund has campaigned widely on the importance of preserving a balance of power in Olympia. “I believe that balance should be the cornerstone of our state government. We’ve seen what happens with one-party rule, we experienced that in our state for decades: spend, spend, spend our hard-earned taxpayer dollars with nothing to show for it,” said Englund. “With a balance of power and a bipartisan coalition, we were able to fully fund education and save the voter-approved charter school law, and establish greater accountability and transparency when it comes to government spending. That’s the kind of leadership we need more of in Olympia. That’s the kind of leader the Andy Hill was. I hope to follow in his footsteps and carry on his legacy.”

Englund resides in Woodinville near her family. Her husband, Geoff, is currently forward-deployed in Asia. Englund is a military spouse and third-generation Washingtonian. Her family has lived on the Eastside for over 30 years. She is an entrepreneur and led a team that built an award-winning app for the U.S. Marine Corps.
