If you live in Washington State or Washington DC, you likely know who she is.
Senator Patty Murray has become the 4th most powerful person in the US Senate, while telling the folks back home she's just a "mom in tennis shoes."
She, in her rise to power, has been very instrumental in facilitating the far left, socialist agenda of President Obama and the left wing tendencies of Governor Gregoire.
Therein is her problem.
People back home are saying "enough".
A recent Rasmussen poll shows both Dino Rossi and Clint Didier, both running in the primary for the opportunity to run against her in November, lead Patty Murray. Rasmussen found either could beat her at the time he took the poll.
A new television ad---KOMO 4 calls it an "attack ad, a sniper attack," poor choice of words in light of recent shootings, is running throughout the Seattle area and elsewhere.
When the ad was first aired, Murray immediately blamed Rossi for it.
Rossi didn't do it. Neither did Didier. American Action Network did it.
The ad points out that the "mom in tennis shoes" has soiled her shoes by stepping on a lot of people in her rise to power, and now many Washingtonians are walking away from her, looking for someone else who will better represent their views and needs.
I have linked the ad---you must see it.
Last month Faith and Freedom ran a poll among our readers and supporters asking who you favor to run against Patty Murray.
When we took down the poll, Clint Didier had 46%, Dino Rossi had 39% and Paul Akers had 14%.
Today we have put up a new poll which includes only the names of Didier, Rossi and Akers.
Please participate. Here's why. It is helpful for people to see what others of like mind and beliefs are thinking as we express our preference in the primary, preparing for our best effort in the general election in November.
Think about this wisdom from the past:
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." Cicero, 55 BC.
Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed. Be Free.
God bless you.
