Could Cantor's defeat also be McMorris Rodgers'?
Letters to the Editor
I would like to comment on Rep. Eric Cantor’s defeat in Virginia last week. Finally the American people are waking up and realizing that their do-nothing elected official’s time has come to go! Here is a no-name candidate who only spent $100,000 vs. Cantor’s $5 million.
That shows me that “We The People” do have a chance and can beat the big spenders and lobbyist.
Our very own Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers should take close notice that her time in Congress is also coming to an end.
She has lost all touch with the 5th District and spends more time campaigning for money out of state, and trying to move up the ladder than she does taking care of the needs of her district.
I hope you will join me in voting for Dave Wilson, Independent candidate for the 5th District. Dave has pledged the following:
He will not take campaign contributions from special interest groups or PACs.
Only to accept contributions only from individuals and only $500 per person.
Not to be a part of any political maneuvering that leads to government shut down.
Not to take part in any dysfunctional and special interest culture.
Hold monthly town hall meetings and responding to all phone calls and e-mails within 24 hours.
Not to accept a pension or work for a lobbyist or special interest group in any way.
Let’s give Cathy McMorris Rodger’s the same message the voters in Virginia did, and send her back to the fruit ranch.
