Jaime Herrera Beutler
Good man backed by real people not pacs
I like Nancy personally, but endorsed by left leaning org
Jackson Maynard, not impressed. Backing of establishment R’s.
Been in public eye so long nothing can be brought out at the last minute to derail the campaign. Will fight against the establishment that runs both parties in this state. Knows he doesn’t know everything and plans to get help from trusted people who do.
Culp doesn’t show up when he says he will, refuses to answer hard questions, late filing paperwork for voter pamphlet and trying to blame the Secretary of State, obnoxious behavior of followers on Facebook – he should have told them to stop, not documenting report of sexual abuse.
Freed – not good at handling money, don’t think his strengths will play across the state in the general
Garcia – establishment late comer with baggage put up to keep all the good guys out of the general
Fortunato – great man, forced to enter late as a legislator, doubt can get traction
This one is tough.
I really prefer Brumbles, but Marty did well statewide last time and has name recognition and more money.
Muri lost his last election in a swing district, I don’t think that bodes well statewide. Also loves biosludge (sewage waste heated to remove biological dangers, but not drug residue) not sure where he would stand on mandatory vaccinations due to public health background.
Sattler was a D until recently. No just no.
SECRETARY OF STATE
No other choice
Duane A. Davidson
No choice and will be settled in the general anyway
Not the hard RINO endorsements, but money
Brett Rogers 2nd choice.
Mike Vaska establishment choice.
COMMISSIONER OF PUBLIC LANDS
Only viable alternative to Hillary
SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION
I like Higgins better, but she is good too and has more chance of winning. Also, we need to reach out to minority race people, not liberal leaning ones that will are unlikely to draw folds R anyway.
The R is mot competent and Welti it a good candidate. Kreidler needs to go.
Follow law not make it
Richard S. Serns
Not current office holder
2nd District Senate
Really hard choice over McCune. I know he would be good and hope she will. Concerned about her union support, they usually lean left. Due to a prayer assignment I did last year the Lord said Gina. If you disagree, pray and vote for who he tells you to vote for.
Ronda Litzenberger Same reservations about endorsers as for Gina.
Matt Shea no need to say more
20th District Representative
The other R is a mini-filer so not really trying to get elected
Only choice not a disaster
Drew C. MacEwen
THURSTON COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT
Jonathan A. Sprouffske
Not endorsed by member of the current Supreme Court which leans so far left they may fall over.
I really like C Davis, but too much time attacking Bud and is running as an R where that is pretty much a death sentence. Need to get rid of Hutchings.
