  1. I really wish something could be done to get rid of Cathy McMorris-Rogers and some of the other do nothing Republicans that dominate Walla Walla County, but I take it that this is one of the “safe” or gerrymandered areas and I will have to look at her standing behind other supposed “leadership” for photo ops and doing nothing else. I never get affirmative responses from her on any emails that I send on issues I am concerned about and believe she is not representing me or others that believe as I do, but no serious competition has been mounted against her in the 14 years I have lived here. I am hopeful, given her stance on Planned Parenthood, that something can be done in the future to take her out with a viable Democratic replacement.

  2. Thanks so much for your list. There are so many people running this time. I want good people in these positions who care about women.

  3. Please cast your vote for those that are defending women’s right to make their own health decisions. Those decisions are personal and do not belong in any political arena.

  4. Thanks for the voting guide, but listing Jay Inslee as a choice may be presumptuous. If he backs Hillary for the presidential nomination, he will not get my vote. Also, he is supporting the TPP. These are signs pointing to DNC leadership, which is now polluted and no longer represents the working class, or for that matter, the people in general. This applies to all District 10 representatives, Patty Murray, Rick Larsen, and Maria Cantwell (not up for reelection until next cycle).

  5. Washington state must be a leader in expanding access to life-saving reproductive health services and not follow the dangerous paths of Ohio, Indiana, or Louisiana. Women and families are not political bargaining chips.
