    Patty will clean this clown's clock so thoroughly that it should drive him out of politics altogether.

    I worked field in Patty's last campaign, against George Nethercutt -- remember him -- the guy who knocked off Tom Foley in 1994? We beat him like a drum, and he had way more going for him than Rossi did.

    Patty puts boots on the ground like you can't imagine. You will see some Girl Power in this race that doesn't turn out for anyone else.

    Not only that, but Patty has awesome support from military families, after a career of advocating for them. This race will be an upset if she gets under 55 percent.

      believe that Murray will win but we REALLY don't need another competive race.  Flood Murray with money and for WA state residents, time and volenteers.

        Patty has a huge war chest already and money won't be a problem. Democrats in WA loathe Rossi and will go out of their way to send him a message. The Tea Partiers consider Rossi a RINO and not "one of them."

        Rossi knows all this, of course. The only reason he's in this race at all, I suspect, is that he has been promised a large amount of wingnut welfare down the line. We'll find out soon enough.

      Patty is an absolute lock in this state.  She not only has the military families, as Ivan pointed out, as well as a powerhouse field organization, she also has blunted any possible huge GOP majorities east of the Cascades.  Her efforts here in the Tri-Cities area of southeast WA, with its good-sized population (250,000) has a booming economy, solely due to the efforts of Sen. Murray to get stimulus dollars here for the Hanford cleanup.  Several thousand new families, all of which are highly-paid professionals/engineers, have moved here in the past year and a half and are grateful to Murray for their jobs.  They don't even know who Rossi is and won't care.
