ELECTION DAY!

The Clark County Republican Party is guided by the 2016 Clark County Republican Party Platform and Core PrinciplesNote that our platform states: We dedicate time, talent, and efforts to electing those candidates who represent these principles and commit to implementing them into public policy.

If you have items for the newsletter or calendar, send them to media@clarkrepublicans.com.  Please visit us at Republican HQ where we have yard signs and literature for many candidates.   Our address is 9401 NE Covington Rd., Vancouver and we are open M-F noon-4pm.  360-695-1609.

Today is Election Day!  Please get those ballots in!  Candidates have been working very hard to earn your vote.  Please do your part.  If you need help give us a call at 360-695-1609.

Do I have to vote in every race?  NO!  Leave races undecided if you must, but turn in that ballot!

ARGH!  This voter’s pamphlet doesn’t show all the candidates!  That’s right. You have to go online to find the statewide voter’s guide.  We set up an easy link at www.VOTES2016.com.  Or give us a call and we can discuss them with you.  360-695-1609.

Got time to actually see the candidates and hear their pitch?  http://www.tvw.org/video-voters-guide/

Hey, there is no Republican in this race!  In the 49th Legislative District there is no Republican listed in Position 1 State Representative (the one with just 2 Democrats).  We encourage you to WRITE IN Don Van Dyke.  He has registered as a write in candidate and would appreciate your vote.  He served this year as a delegate to the county and state conventions and has been an excellent volunteer for the Party.

Will Clark County lag the state in voter turnout again?  We are one of the counties that can overcome the liberal King County vote if we just improve our voter turnout.  Candidates, Bill Bryant and Michael Waite made calls from our call center on Sunday and were very impressed with our high tech operation.  Please stop in today and let us show it to you.   Today is the last day to preview it before fall.  9401 NE Covington Rd. Vancouver.

Primary Night Victory Party and you’re invited!  Representative Liz Pike and candidates Vicki Kraft and Eileen Quiring want to thank you for your support tonight in Brush Prairie.  Children are welcome to attend.

Meet Thousands of voters at the Fair booth: The Clark County Fair runs from August 5th through the 14th.  We still have shifts to fill.  Please contact Katja at 360-771-4858 wa4liberty@gmail.com to get on the schedule.

"This ballot is WAY TOO complicated".  That is what we hear daily.  Please note that Clark County is only one of 10 counties in the state that even sends out a voter's guide.  It does not include the statewide candidates.  To find the statewide voter's guide you must go to the Secretary of State's website.  The guide will be found here.  There are other resources in this newsletter, including candidate websites in the list of candidates below.


Last year's call center photo

Here’s what your Clark County Republican Party is up to right now:  Ballots are coming in and are being processed.  This is the critical time in the election cycle to get all our friends to vote.  Here are some of the ways we are helping Republicans.  Please see where you can help out:

Election Observers:  We have certified Election Observers at the elections office each day monitoring ballots coming in and being processed.  If you are a certified observer you should be getting regular updates on the schedule.  Contact Kenny if you are not getting updates: KennySmith@ClarkRepublicans.com 360-521-8565

Call Center workers:  The call center is operating 1:00 – 8:30pm each day (11am on Saturday).  Contact KennySmith@ClarkRepublicans.com 360-521-8565 to get on the schedule.  This is HIGH PRIORITY for the next week.

Candidate parade walkers and canvassersThanks to everyone who helped in the parades!  Continue walking now for your favorite candidates by canvassing with them.  Their contact information is listed below in the list of candidates.

Identifying Republicans with WSRP’s SW WA Field Director:  Volunteers are working with Hal Palmer from WSRP to identify voters in a door to door effort.  If you want to work with the best, contact Hal at 360-431-2733 hal.equitynw@gmail.com.  He has a ton of experience and needs you!  If you have never done this type of outreach before you will be surprised at how receptive the voters will be and how much better you’ll feel knowing you’re getting your exercise and saving the country at the same time!  Hal will meet a group at 10am this Saturday at HQ.  Come join him if you are not already occupied with campaign activity.

Meeting Thousands of voters at the Fair booth: This hasn’t actually started yet, but the Clark County Fair runs from August 5th through the 14th.  The fair is open from morning to night and we have to have it staffed the entire time.  Lots of volunteers are needed.  Please contact Katja at 360-771-4858 wa4liberty@gmail.com to get on the schedule. 

 

National Delegate, Joel Mattila wants to thank you:  "My emotions overwhelmed me as each state announced its votes for Mr. Trump. I didn't realize how much I had invested in this campaign emotionally and I had to gulp each time as votes were announced. When New York put him over the top, the hall erupted I was completely overcome. I am so proud to be involved in this movement that is more revolution than campaign. Jump on board the Trump Train and let's work together to Make America Great Again!"  Join Joel (other national delegates should join us too) this Friday evening 7:30pm at HQ.  Details below in the Coming Events section for July 29th.  Here is a story where Joel is featured: http://q13fox.com/2016/07/20/meet-the-delegates-joel-mattila-stands-tall-for-trump/

Bill Bryant to join our call center, in person on July 31st! Call Center workers will get to work beside Governor Candidate, Bill Bryant on July 31st between 5:00 – 8:00pm.  Other candidates are expected to participate.  Come join us!  See Bill Bryant’s Big Blue Bus Tour Whistle Stop Schedule here: http://www.billbryantforgovernor.com/bustour?utm_campaign=icymi_bus_all&utm_medium=email&utm_source=billbryant.

Help your family and friends realize the importance of voting in the primary.  We will narrow the field to just two candidates in each race.  In most cases it will be one Republican and one Democrat.  Will that be a Republican that supports our Core Principles and Platform?  That is up to you.  Please study the candidates and help your friends make the best choice.

Another reason to vote in the primary, even if there is only one Republican in the race, is that the more votes they get, the more attention and the more donors they will attract for the general election in November.  If they get more votes in the primary than the Democrat they also will be first on the ballot and in the voter's guide!

Until August 5th, candidates and their volunteers will be out doorbelling and we’ll have volunteers making phone calls in the office.  Please join us or one of the candidates.  My phone number is 360-521-8565 and the candidate’s contact information is listed below.  Please contact us now!

We have supplies for many of the candidates at HQ.  We just received a slew of Kim Wyman yard signs that we would love to get out, plus some 4X8s that need volunteers to erect.   We also have many Bill Bryant yard signs.  Stop in and pick them up.

We encourage you to write letters to the editors asking people to vote for your favorite candidate.  This should be done immediately as I expect there is a backlog of letters waiting to be published.  Personal endorsements, like yard signs and letters, are very powerful.

Remember that many of our candidates came to our county convention (as well as one Democrat who claimed he was a Republican).  Their speeches can be viewed here.  They are in this order if you want to skip ahead: US Senate candidate, Chris Vance, Secretary of State Incumbent Kim Wyman, State Auditor candidate, Mark Miloscia, State Treasurer candidates, Duane Davidson and Michael Waite, Lieutenant Governor candidate, Phillip Yin, 17th LD Senate candidate, Lynda Wilson, 17th LD Representative candidates, Vicki Kraft and The Democrat, 17th LD Representative Incumbent Paul Harris, 20th LD Representative Incumbent Ed Orcutt, 18th LD Representative Incumbent Liz Pike, 18th LD Representative Incumbent Brandon Vick, County Council District 3 Incumbent David Madore, County Council District 3 candidates, John Blom, County Council District 4 candidates, Jennifer McDaniel and Eileen Quiring

They also had the opportunity to speak for a CVTV video voter’s guide which can be found here: http://www.cvtv.org/vid_link/18222

Now, more than ever, we must exercise due diligence when making our choice.  Many races will be decided in this primary, so in those races your primary vote is more important than the November 8th general election.  Please closely compare the voter’s statements in the voter’s guides and study the other resources listed below in light of your platform and your core principles.

A write-in Candidate for the 49th!  Don Van Dyke, discovering there was no Republican challenger for Sharon Wylie, filed to run as a write-in candidate.  His phone number is 360-574-5223 if you would like to speak with him.  He was a delegate to the county and state convention and we became well acquainted.  He was also a big help with the Lincoln Day Dinner with donations and phone calls.  He is a good choice and would appreciate your vote.  Please write in Don Van Dyke for State Representative, Pos 1.

"Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” – the new Dinesh D'Souza movie will be out July 22nd.  Maybe we can make an event out of it.  Here's part of the synopsis from the movie web-site:  "Hillary's America . . . takes audiences on a gripping journey into the secret history of the Democratic Party and the contentious rise of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton…reveals the sordid truth about Hillary . . . This eye-opening film sheds light on the Democrats' transition from pro-slavery to pro-enslavement, how Hillary Clinton's political mentor was, literally, a cold-blooded gangster, and how the Clintons and other Democrats see foreign policy not in terms of national interest, but in terms of personal profit.  Hillary's America will uncover how their plan is to simply steal America."

The Clark County Republican Party is guided by the 2016 Clark County Republican Party Platform and Core Principles.

Ballots will be in the mail by the end of this week.  Who will get your vote?

Democrat Chuck Green was defeated last year in the County Council race, but presumably supports the votes the council has taken since that election, which overturned most of the conservative gains of the past few years.  For this election, Chuck Green’s choice, and the choice of many prominent Democrats, including the former chairman of their Party, is John Blom and Jennifer McDaniel, according to the candidate’s websites.

Our Party’s stated mission is to elect Republicans who are guided by our platform of lower taxes, limited government and more personal responsibility.  That makes these endorsements by Democrats confusing.  Now, more than ever, we must exercise due diligence when making our choice.  Many races will be decided in this primary, so in this respect your primary vote is more important than the November 8th general election.  Please closely compare the voter’s statements in the voter’s guides and study the other resources listed below in light of your platform and your core principles.

Bill Bryant's parents rode the bus with us to Tacoma

The Bill Bryant event in Tacoma was fantastic.  There was a great turnout from around the state with charter buses coming from several locations.  Our bus stopped in Lacey and picked up a group that included Bill’s parents.  Bill comes from a really nice family and it was fun to spend time with them.  The program itself was very well organized, but the highlight was clearly Bill’s speech.  How can he deliver a powerful speech like that without notes?  When asked that question, his dad's answer was that Bill was the leader of the debate team in school.  His mother said it was because his speech was delivered from the heart.  Certainly they were both correct.  It was an excellent speech and we’ll include a link to it when it becomes available.  You will want to be in the audience when he debates Jay Inslee. 

We have just a few months to promote Bill Bryant.  Stop by HQ and pick up a yard sign and literature.  Be sure to attend any events where Bill is in attendance and study his website so you can be knowledgeable about him.  He is a great candidate and will be the first Republican Governor in over 30 years if we all join forces to support him.

We have just a few more days to gather signatures for the Bathroom Bill.  300,000 signatures are needed by July 8th.  Clark County has really come to life on this issue recently.  We are getting thousands of signatures, but we could still use your help.  We have lots of blank forms at HQ that you can have to get signatures for the effort.  We are almost out of time.  Here is what this petition will do:

  • Repeals the Human Right’s Commission Open Bathroom/Shower Rule. 5 reasons to repeal the rule.
  • Removes liability from businesses who want to maintain gender-specific bathrooms/locker rooms/
  • Requires schools to maintain gender specific bathrooms/locker rooms, and requires that schools provide any gender non-conforming students with a reasonable accommodation that protects the privacy and safety of all students.

In a related article from Gary Bauer:
“You may recall that last month the Obama Administration ordered every school to give boys who claim to be girls access to girls' bathrooms and locker rooms. Outraged parents have responded in some cases by suing the schools for violating the privacy rights of their children.
  In Florida, the margin was 54% against to 37% in favor.
  In Ohio, it was 55% against to 36% in favor.
  In Pennsylvania, it was 53% against to 39% in favor.
This is just one more issue where the American people are clearly with us and against the left, but too many of our leaders in Congress are afraid or unwilling to debate it.”

Clark County Republican HQ is open M-F Noon – 4pm.  9401 NE Covington Rd, Vancouver. 

Washington in the news.  Does your vote count? 14 million people voted for Donald Trump, but 112 people can negate those votes by establishing new rules for the convention.  You have probably heard of the effort to change the rules at the national convention to prevent Donald Trump from getting the nomination.  Gina Reed, one of our own Rules Committee members, is apparently working with that movement.  Maybe she should hear from you. 

Here is one of many Facebook posts from her:  (Copied as written)  “I am putting this out there.  Please know that I am going to be under significant political pressure over the next few weeks.  If you wish to have CIVIL honest discussion about decisions I am making on behalf of those who elected me to be a National Delegate and on the Rules Committee, then I welcome it.  I had the most amazing discussion with a fellow Rules Member from another State who is also working for the RNC.  It was the most refreshing conversation I have had in a long time.  He is a retired Lawyer, former State GOP Chair of a LARGE Republican State.  He was able to TRULY look at the issues from all sides and separate personal bias from his role at the RNC and then again really discuss with me the pros and cons of all sides.  He himself is seriously weighing all sides.  For those of you who don’t understand what I am talking about……I have been put in a position of serious importance not because of my credentials, but I am trusting God put me here.  That is not to say that I am worthy.  God tends to choose the weak and underqualified.  So I am taking my role seriously.  I am one of 112 people from across the country who will have a part in determining the RULES for the GOP convention in Cleveland.  It is here in this committee that we may or may not allow Delegates to vote their Conscience.  Something that has been a GOP standard for over 100 years up until 1976 when their was an attempt to block Reagan.  I have already been contacted by POLITICO this morning and will no doubt receive many emails and calls.  IF you are just going to tell me my vote will get Hillary elected OR that I will ruin the GOP OR that I will disenfranchise millions of voters OR even that I will have blood on my hands, then save yourself the keystrokes and defriend me now.  I will only have to do it myself.  And I do not care if we have been friends for years.  I will not tolerate it.  On the other hand, if you want to respectfully question and to add to the counsel I receive, I gladly receive it.  Respectfully and humbly, Gina.”  This is from a FB group called Washington State Republicans.  You might want to give Gina Reed some counsel.

Big Event Saturday!

If you have items for the calendar or newsletter, send them to media@clarkrepublicans.com.  We have yard signs and literature for many of the candidates at HQ - 9401 NE Covington Rd.  We are open M-F noon-4pm.




Let’s end 30 years of Democrat rule in Washington State!  Bill Bryant can win this Governor’s race, but it will take all of us working together.  He is a great candidate with broad appeal.  It is critical that we show up in force to support him this Saturday in Tacoma.  He will be joined by New Mexico Governor, Susana Martinez; Secretary of State, Kim Wyman and many others.  Bill has traveled south many times to support our events, let’s return the favor and take the short trip to meet him in Tacoma. 

We will have a charter bus leaving HQ Saturday morning.  RSVP here whether you intend to ride our bus or drive up on your own. Whatever you do, find your way to Tacoma on Saturday!  This will mean a lot to the Governor’s race as well as all Republican candidates on the ballot.

Time is running short to gather signatures for the Bathroom Bill.  300,000 signatures are needed by July 8th.  The county has really come to life on this issue this week.  Thanks Piper McEwen & Ann Donnelly for taking leadership on this issue.  We have lots of blank forms at HQ that you can have to get signatures for the effort.  We are really running short on time, but this is still doable.  Here is what this petition will do:

  • Repeals the Human Right’s Commission Open Bathroom/Shower Rule. 5 reasons to repeal the rule.
  • Removes liability from businesses who want to maintain gender-specific bathrooms/locker rooms/
  • Requires schools to maintain gender specific bathrooms/locker rooms, and requires that schools provide any gender non-conforming students with a reasonable accommodation that protects the privacy and safety of all students.

Stop by the office to sign and pick up petitions:  We’re open M-F Noon – 4pm.  9401 NE Covington Rd, Vancouver.  Currently available: The I-1515 bathroom bill https://justwantprivacy.org/ and $30 car tab Petitions https://www.voterswantmorechoices.com/Index.html

Lots of campaign signs and literature at HQ - 9401 NE Covington Rd, Vancouver.  Open noon 4pm, Monday through Friday..  Just in: Phillip Yin for Lt. Governor yard signs and supplies.  Local Phillp Yin contact is Don Van Dyke 360-574-5223. 

WSRP is accepting applications for Field Directors in key targeted regions (including Clark County).  The Field Director assists in increasing Republican voter registration, increasing the voter identification numbers in the region by leading canvassing efforts, helps Republicans in local races, and motivates and trains the Republican Party grassroots in preparation for 2016’s statewide elections.  For a full job description of the Field Director position and instructions on how to submit your application, CLICK HERE.  Jake Braunger, Political Director Washington State Republican Party  (425) 460-0570

A little over a week ago we asked Republican candidates to assess their concurrence with our Core Principles and County Party Platform in order to receive access to party resources.  You can find the Core Principles here and the Clark County Republican Party platform here.  We asked them to state, either that they agree with the statements as written, or to offer their explanation of how their position differs.  It turns out they apparently don’t mind completing surveys for LifePAC, NRA or the Columbian editorial board, but many seem to be having a meltdown over answering our survey.  Please look over the Core Principles and Platform and tell us if you would like to know where candidates stand on those statements.

The state party has required the same for years as can be seen in WSRP Policy number 84-1 which reads in part (emphasis added):  “The candidate must exhibit a willingness to work with the Party (state and county) organization. He must declare his general support for the Platform and clearly define points of disagreement if any exist. This Guideline is in accordance with the resolution passed by the 1984 Washington State Republican Party Convention”.  

Also, the following resolution was recommended and passed at the recent WSRP Convention in Pasco: RESOLUTION 00-04 Republican Candidate Qualifications:  We support only candidates who are trustworthy, have integrity, and high moral character, and who support the Washington State Party Platform, as well as the State and Federal Constitution they swear to uphold.  Respectfully Submitted to The Washington State GOP Convention, Pasco, WA, 19-21 May 2016 – BY: Michele Smith, Pierce County; Cheryl Cheslik, Pierce; Russell N Dzialo, Whatcom; Katherine Davis, Clallam; Ric Fritz, Pierce

This became an issue, in part, when a Clark County candidate gave speeches around town as to how he was recruited to run for the position to keep it in Republican’s hands, asked for our Republican voter lists, and then filed to run as a Democrat.  (He did not get the list, BTW).

Please register here for the Bill Bryant event.

Let’s get on the bus for Bill!  Join us for a bus trip to Tacoma to kick off the campaign for Bill Bryant for Governor.  We'll charter a bus if we get a few more people to sign up.  Bill is an excellent candidate for this very winnable race.  His success will help Republicans in every other race on the ballot.  Please let us know if you intend to ride on our bus or if you intend to travel on your own. 


Lincoln Day Dinner: As reported last week, we had a fantastic Lincoln Day Dinner!  Photos of the event can be found here and will soon be added to our Facebook album.  Many remarked that it was our best Lincoln Day Dinner ever and we raised over $40,000!  We had terrific speakers, incredible auction items and very generous guests. 

Thank you to Fred Boyd of Boyd’s Auctions and Estate Sales who sold the items so generously contributed by individuals and businesses such as Alan Kangas, Mayer’s Custom Meats, DeWils Industries, Creekside Home Painting, Representative Liz Pike, Jase & Jennie Stefanski, Refuge Custom Painting, RW Pawn, NW Vista Balloon Adventures, Richard Johnson, Gevorg Mkhitaryan, Joseph Wagner, Glen Kincaid, Debbie Larner, MK Tactical, David & Donna Madore, Global Security & Sutherland Plumbing.  What a generous group who went above and beyond what was required to make this a spectacular event!  Many, many more donors showered us with great silent auction items too numerous to list here today.

It was a beautiful event which was captured by CVTV.  You can watch it here in its entirety (except for the fantastic auction part): http://www.cvtv.org/vid_link/18161 or you can click on the following links to view specific portions:
