I don't want Patti Murray to win, but I'm not so sure about Rossi. This is from Clint Didier's site:

I placed a phone call to Dino Rossi the night before my press conference offering him my endorsement upon his agreement to make a public commitment to honor the following platform planks. I asked that, if elected to the United States Senate in November, he would:

  1. Pledge to never vote for new or increases in existing taxes.
  2. Pledge to never vote for any bill that causes a net increase in federal spending.
  3. Pledge to introduce Dr. Paul’s “Sanctity of Life” bill in the Senate (Since Dino says he is pro-life)

He refused. Sensing Rossi’s reluctance to a public commitment, I even offered to accept his private verbal commitment to me alone – believing I could then feel good enough to endorse. He still refused. The phone call ended there.

I did not ask for a commitment to reducing taxes and spending. All I asked for is a pledge to not let either grow beyond where they stand now. This only stops the train. Make no mistake, just stopping the train, or “holding the line” - a favorite statement of establishment Republicans - will not eliminate the pending bankruptcy and economic collapse we now face as a nation.

What do all the other fiscally conservative/libertarian Seattlites think? Can we count on him to reduce spending like he says, or is he just another politician? Please give me resources to read. I don't know Didier either (though he was endorsed by Ron Paul whom I trust as a person of character) so his evaluation may or may not be correct. I really don't want Murray to win, though. But with this evaluation of Rossi, I was planning on writing Didier in based on conviction and hopeful speculation.

Do you think those Liberal Feminists in love with Murray will be just thrilled reading your entry (???)
