    One of my two representatives is in the picture with Gov. Inslee.  She is Shelly Short.  She used to be a field representative for Cathy McMorris Rodgers.  Her mailings are fairly wingnut, but she has actually done some normal things lately.

    Not sure of the other people, besides the governor.  It is interesting that someone from an extremely conservative part of the state is happy to be standing with the governor on this.

    •  I'm guessing Shelly Short is in a rural district (1+ / 0-)

      with a lot of  poor white Republicans on food assistance, and it is an election year. Not that being starved by Republicans ever stopped hungry Republicans from voting for the Republicans who are starving them.

      I have been thinking that I would make a proposition to my Republican friends... that if they will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them. Adlai E. Stevenson

            have brought to them. A former boss, who often muttered about LIBERALS, said back in '09 or so that "The government is going to send me money." I said, "I expect you to refuse it as a matter of principle." I wasn't kidding.
