The lastest ads in the Dino Rossi campaign would have you believe that Patty Murray is responsible for all that is wrong with our country.
Let’s examine the facts.
Murray took office in January 1993. In November 1994 came the Republican takeover, which means they were sworn into office in January 1995.
In November 2008, the Democrats were voted in as majority of the Senate and sworn in in January 2009. (From 2007 to 2009 the Senate was a deadlock with Dick Cheney casting the tie-breaker.)
Rossi’s ads talk about “Patty Murray’s 18 years” but neglect to mention that during her 18 years in the Senate, the Republicans were in control two-thirds of the time.
Tell the truth, Dino. It won’t get you votes, but it might save your soul.
