It is astounding what blue state GOP organizations must face just to get by. In Washington State, Republicans held a slim majority in the state senate. Then one seat opened up, and the candidate running to replace the retiring incumbent ran away from Trump and tried to make up for the Trump-Clinton deficit which had swept the state senate district in 2016.
The state party is fighting as hard as they can, in spite of these losses. The previous chairman was hoping that a Trump victory in the Evergreen State would give a boost for the down ticket. Trump would bring back the timber industry to a state where regressive leftists along the coastline had ruined everyone else's lives.
Now Seattle is doubling down on their socialist, redistributionist agenda, pushing another set of ridiculous tax increases.
Could it be worse? It could come to California, that's for sure. Californians are starting to push back against Sacramento insanity. Is there enough pushback in Seattle and throughout Washington State to put a stop to the tax-and-spendthrift insanity.
