To get an idea of what this state may look like under the rule of a Gov. Rob McKenna, one need only look at some of the unfortunate states that elected Republicans into office last fall. States such as Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Florida, Maine and New Jersey.
During the campaign, these now newly elected Republican governors gave little or no hint at the extreme agenda that they had in store for those unfortunates. Once in office they at once began attacking the middle class, the poor, the unions, the environment, minorities, voters, demonizing them all and taking away their wages, retirement, educational opportunities, their jobs and their very dignity.
When they protested, they were portrayed as greedy, selfish thugs. In one of these states, the very right to have a freely elected local government of the people’s choosing was taken away.
In all of these states, these new governors are so unpopular that they could not be elected dog catcher today. Outside interests will pour millions into getting McKenna elected by convincing you that he is a moderate. His real views are much the same as those unelectable dog catchers. Caveat emptor.
