Hi Fellow Democrat,
The NEW YEAR is fast approaching. It seems that for many of you, it can’t get here fast enough. There is a lot of excitement, interest, hope and desire being evidenced for the 3rd Congressional District race; that is, to unseat Congressperson Jaime Herrera Beutler.
That is a race we’re all putting energy into. Volunteers are signing up on the website to work on a successful Congressional campaign -LINK.
The energy is a really good sign. It emanates from vigorous anti-Trump feelings, logically. Folks are not sitting on their hands waiting for 2020 Presidential Race – they recognize that we must get control of the federal House and Senate, and we can do that in 2018.
The indicators are good – there have been big 2017 wins for Democrats in Virginia and Alabama. And we all know when Democrats come out and vote, Democrats win!
Another key race is in the 18th LD right here in Clark County. That’s where Kathy Gillespie is making her second bid to win the Liz Pike seat (Seat 2) as Washington State Representative. Kathy is raising $50,000 dollars this year to show her faith and commitment in the race next year. If you haven’t donated yet, here’s a link – LINK DONATE. This is a real opportunity to get a Democrat in the 18th LD!
There are other races coming up that we’ll in highlight in coming weeks. In the meantime -
HAVE A WONDERFUL, AND SAFE, NEW YEAR!
Sincerely, Rich Rogers
Chair, Clark County Democrats
