Who Can Oust Patty Murray?

Patty Murray, dubbed “the Mom in Tennis Shoes” and first elected as US Senator in 1992, is facing another “tough election” in her bid to retain her seat of power. In typical leftist fashion, Murray begins the victim card early by whining of a “tough election” even though she is Washington States senior Senator and holds some very powerful positions in the Senate.

Murray says she “understands voters’ frustration with a struggling economy, prolonged war, complex reforms in health care and the fact that a fix for immigration issues continues to elude Congress,” completely ignoring that she has been part and parcel of the escalating economic problems and growing tension over ILLEGAL immigration that she and her fellow Senators have long ignored.

Claiming “Every time I run, I’m an underdog,” Murray’s $11 Million raised for her campaign war chest isn’t too shabby.

Murray, queen darling of pork laden leftists, is facing 3 viable Republican challengers, Dino Rossi, Clint Didier and Paul Akers and defeating her will be a tough task. But, she is vulnerable, as shown in Rasmussen Polling, giving Didier and Rossi each 48% to her 45% preference by voters polled.

Akers remains close behind her and gaining ground.

After our August 11 primary, only one will be running against her and it is critical, if we wish to unseat Patty finally and hopefully begin returning sanity to our government, that we choose who best can defeat her.

Dino Rossi, twice defeated for governor of Washington State, the 2004 election being an obvious stolen election, enjoys the most name recognition, but doesn’t seem to hold the passion for the run like he once did. His late entry into the race is said to have prevented much fund raising of others as they tried to build campaigns, most of those candidates dropping once he entered and endorsing him.

Clint Didier, former football player and farmer, is gaining in name recognition and is probably the most passionate of the three. However, he has chosen to embrace the foreign policy and other views of well-known politikook, Ron Paul in regards to the ongoing War in Afghanistan and the health reform bill purchased 3,000 shotguns for the IRS.

Paul Akers, inventor, entrepreneur and small businessman, remains the least known of the 3 challengers with the best chance to defeat Murray, seems to have the most ideas, but lacks in the passion shown by Didier and does not have the name recognition of Rossi.

Didier and Akers both shows ties to the loosely knit group known as the TEA Party throughout the state, Didier receiving the well received endorsement of Alaska former governor and vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, while Rossi indicates he can ignore the group and still receive their support in the November general election, leading many conservatives to feel taken for granted.

Both Didier and Akers have held functions of their own in Clark County while Rossi has yet to.

All 3 made appearances at the Republican Resurgence Convention held in Vancouver this past June, Didier leaving suddenly to meet with Mrs. Palin Friday morning in the Tri-Cities area.

Rossi remains far ahead of both Didier and Akers in campaign donations, having raised some $1.4 Million, compared to Didier’s slightly more than $350,000 and Akers’ more than $275,000. Rossi has also spent the least, in part due to his late entry while others were campaigning.

One of these 3 will go on to run against Murray in the general election in November and I can’t honestly say which one I support yet. But, if we are to unseat Murray, as many in the state desire, we must choose who we feel is best suited and support whoever wins the August 17 primary with all we have.

We can expect the Democrats to fight with everything they have to retain Murray in the US Senate seat.

Shouldn’t we throw everything we have towards ousting her?

Patty Murray is a disgrace.

I laugh at how she, a 3 term Senator with many senior positions, cries victim and underdog.

I long for the day she is gone and we might have some sanity return.

I remember her first campaign. She pretty much avoided Central and Northern Whidbey Island. The Navy tends to put her off as does the rest of the Forces. We could see through her. But when your base is made up of the idiot lockers of Whatcom, King and Thurston Counties, what would one expect. Thank the Almighty I was still a Montana resident at that time. (active duty/non resident)
I refuse to render honors now that I have been retired since 1993 to patty or her demonrat colleagues. Not gonna happen.

Murray doesn't render Veterans honor, she panders for votes by trying to buy us.

Don;t forget, it was she who blocked efforts by the VA at ferreting out some phonies drawing disability for PTSD claims, that robs legitimate Veterans of much needed care and funds.
