Kelcie Moseley: “His chances of winning don’t matter. Run for public office and get your ideas out there.”

Sean Kramer: “I worry about his slogan. He’s going to have to reach out to Republicans and moderates who aren’t thrilled with Trump in order to win a seat from Eastern Washington.”

David Mclerran: “Cathy is too well established. She has a strong command of the issues and a connection with the community.”

Joe Wride: ““Yes! Take her out! She is another partisan crony who should be voted out of office. Same goes for Cantwell and Murray, too. The ship is sinking with them all at the helm. Till it up!”
