"Get the Gavel" in 2012!
Republicans are fired up and ready to ramp it up in 2012!
"Elect 12 in '12!" and "Get the Gavel" were frequent refrains sounded throughout the Republican House and Senate Caucus Room on February 21 during "State Committee Goes to Olympia Day."
Kicked off by WSRP Chairman Kirby Wilbur, the three-hour event featured a "Who's Who" line-up of state representatives including Richard DeBolt, Barbara Bailey (pictured), Norma Smith, Bill Hinkle and Michael Baumgartner, who keynoted at this year's GHRP Lincoln Day Dinner. Baumgartner gave a "shout out" to Grays Harbor Republicans for "a great dinner with a great group of Republicans." Baumgartner is challenging Maria Cantwell for U.S. Senate.
Republican representatives spoke time and time again about the "sad" state of the recently released Democrat budget, which cuts "a little bit from everything" versus the Republican budget plan, which prioritizes spending on education, public safety and the most vulnerable. "The Republican budget incorporates principle and priorities" said Rep. Wilcox, "versus the Democrat budget that's full of gimmicks."
Another legislator said, "Liberty is under assault, whether it's religious liberty or economic liberty. We're in an existential battle for the future of Washington State. We need your help and support every day."
How 'bout we start with "getting the gavel" and making Republicans the majority party in Olympia this November?
