Washington Senate: Rossi (R) 48% Murray (D) 46%
In Washington State, the U.S. Senate race remains one of the closest in the country. The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state shows Republican challenger Dino Rossi attracting 48% of the vote while Democratic Senator Patty Murray earns support from 46%. Three percent (3%) prefer a different candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.
Most people are sensing that something is very wrong in our country and culture---socially, fiscally and even morally.
As we approach the 2010 elections, people who care are looking for solutions. Hundreds of thousands gather in Washington DC because they care and millions of Americans are evaluating candidates who are asking for their vote. We all know the 2010 and the 2012 election is a defining time in American history. It is a crossroads unlike any of us have faced in our lifetime. The stakes are incredibly high.
Faith and Freedom is very focused on getting people the kind of information that will help them be informed and hopefully, inspire and motivate them to vote.
I, and our board of directors, believe that the root of the problems we face in our country and our communities, is primarily a moral, not a political one. In addressing the political opportunities of this election, we must include a moral---a right and wrong, component.
There are voices who seek to mislead, suggesting that social issues should not be a public consideration in voting. And if a candidate makes them an issue, or takes a moral stand, it will result in loosing the election.
Not all Republicans should be endorsed and not all Democrats should be opposed.
Discernment is a gift. We must use it.
Recently, Steve Litzow (R) who is running for state senate in the 41rst District was endorsed by some on our side.
Steve Litzow serves on a state NARAL board. Does that represent your values?
When the "everything but marriage"--SB 5688 vote was taken last year, 3 Senate Republicans broke from their Republican colleagues and pro-marriage citizens and voted to advance the homosexual agenda. Cheryl Pflug, 5th District, Dale Brandland, 42nd District and Curtis King, 14th District voted against the defense of marriage and for the homosexual agenda to redefine marriage.
Circulating that kind of straight forward information often draws sharp criticism and personal attack both from within and from without.
I know these are difficult financial times for most all of us. However, I need your help.
To get this kind of straight forward, no nonsense information into the public takes considerable effort and a little money.
To complete our efforts to educate and inform the public, we need additional funds now.
In addition to the materials we are creating, we plan to purchase material from David Barton that addresses the biblical mandate for Christian involvement in voting. We want to circulate this to help inspire people to get involved, get registered and vote.
We need several thousand dollars additional this month for these purposes.
Whatever you can do will help tremendously. I know you understand and know if we didn't need it, we wouldn't ask.
You can donate online here or mail a check to Box 399, Bellevue, WA. 98009. This is for educational purposes. Your donation is tax deductible.
Thank you so much.
Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed. Be a Blessing.
