TV crew camped outside house of Republican Washington state sen candidate Jan Angel.
Go and tell the press that you won't talk to them, and what do you think will happen? It's media catnip. (KOMO camera crew camping out outside scared Republican's house.)
Goal ThermometerALEC has invested quite a bit in Jan Angel, and she has made sure to play her role.
Angel acknowledged the [debate] question [about ALEC] was likely prompted by her chair role but she said of Schlicher's contentions [that ALEC plain sucks], "This is a bunch of hooey." As chair, she said, she passed ALEC recommendations to the caucuses of both political parties, not just her own Republicans.
Well, except that Democrats don't want anything to do with those recommendations. And in fact:
There are currently 14 Republican legislators in Washington who belong to ALEC, and most are considered among the most conservative lawmakers.
And of course, there's Obamacare, obviously:
Angel co-sponsored a measure that would have barred the state from spending any money on planning or implementing Obamacare.
That's not a record that Angel is happy to defend. So she's running from the press, afraid to alienate district voters with her agenda.

So chip in a few bucks and help our Washington friends keep this ALEC toady out of the Senate, and give Democrats a better chance to take the Washington Senate back from its Lieberdem-Republican majority.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
