Wilson is humble, rational

As a lifelong Republican, it’s hard to watch what’s happening in the GOP. While I agree with Cathy McMorris Rodgers on a number of issues, she is now part of the problem. Her loyalty to the party has led her to endorse Donald Trump. For me, that is a deal-breaker and evidence that Cathy is putting party loyalty ahead of her good sense. She could have voted for a third party.

Democrats should vote for David Wilson in the Top 2 primary. He’s very sane, humble and rational. Check out his website and you’ll find someone you can agree with on some issues and who can work with either party. Most importantly, he has the best chance to defeat McMorris Rodgers in the general election.

Let’s face it, the odds of a Democrat beating Cathy in November are very slim. On the other hand, nearly all Democrats will vote for David should he make the top 2 and the vast majority of Independents will do the same.

If you want different representation in the 5th, David Wilson is your best choice. He would be a step in the right direction.
