Democrat U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene (1st District) is never ashamed to pander for money, supporters and—presumably—votes using brazenly desperate strategies. Her latest plan mimics Jay Inslee’s go-to strategy — which isn’t all that surprising considering that her fundraising consultant is Tracy Newman, the same hired gun behind our green governor’s desperate fundraising appeals.
Like Inslee, DelBene is resorting to using Donald Trump as a scare tactic. A recent campaign email states:
“And with Trump’s victory in Washington last week, it’s obvious that extremism is on the rise.”
It’s pathetic, to say the least. Of course Trump won Washington State — he was the only GOP candidate left standing by the time our state got to vote.
And, which party is at fault for Washington’s belated say in presidential primaries?
Last year, GOP Secretary of State Kim Wyman pushed to move up our state’s primary to March. Democrats blocked the move — they ignore the primary results anyway.
If DelBene has a problem with Washington State’s primary system, perhaps she should examine her own party. Especially considering the extremely undemocratic nature of her Democrat Party.
