SENATE: Didier wrong to attack fellow Republican

U.S. Senate candidate Clint Didier is showing his true colors, and I hope the Tea Party followers – and Republicans – are watching.

When Dino Rossi announced his candidacy to run against Patty Murray, Didier’s response was that Rossi is “a part of the Republican establishment.” I don’t understand this statement; Didier has been using the Republican brand for nearly a year to launch his campaign.

As a precinct committee officer for the Republican Party, I refuse to endorse any GOP candidate who resorts to personal attacks on a fellow Republican to gain votes. That scuzzy tactic belongs to the left.

Didier, just like any other candidate, should be required to prove why he is better than the other GOP candidates. What are his plans? His ideas for improving the economy? Will his two Super Bowl rings somehow get us out of this mess we’re in?

I urge all voters to consider the candidates for August’s primary very carefully. This election is so very important. Our futures depend on it.
