From Congresswoman Linda Smith: An important messageUnlike Herrera, or Eric Earling, (Is he looking for a job, or what?) or Nan Malin, I worked my ass off for Linda Smith in 1994. Herrera was no where to be seen. But my understanding is there is something of a family relationship, so until now, I've stayed essentially quiet about how disappointed I am that Linda Smith would work to stiff us with this empty suited Guardian of the SEIU.
In America, every generation has left behind a better place for its children.
But now our national debt threatens the prosperity we've worked so long and so hard to achieve. Southwest Washington citizens are struggling to find jobs. Economic uncertainty is taking its toll on families. Yet, the government continues to make promises it simply won’t be able to keep and rather than spending less money, politicians in Washington, D.C. talk about adding even more job-killing taxes to deal with this debt.
We need a new generation of leaders. We need Jaime Herrera.
Not since we won our historic write-in campaign for Congress in 1994 have we had such an important opportunity in Southwest Washington. With 3rd District Democrat Congressman Brian Baird retiring, Republicans have a chance to reclaim this Congressional district and we’ll have one more vote to repeal and replace the $1 trillion healthcare disaster.
That’s why I hope you’ll join me today in supporting Jaime’s campaign for Congress with a contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more.
I wouldn’t be supporting Jaime unless I truly believed in her. She’s intelligent, conservative and hard working – and most importantly – she’s right on the issues. As your Congresswoman, Jaime will fight against big government power grabs like its recent healthcare takeover, and government bailouts for Wall Street.
Your financial support is critical to building a strong grassroots operation across the 3rd District that will carry her to victory this November.
Thank you for your support of Jaime Herrera. Let’s work together and win!
Former Congresswoman, 3rd District
The LAST thing we need is "Jaime Herrera," or anything LIKE Jaime Herrera.
I was always struck by and respected Smith as an outsider to the establishment. Unfortunately for us, The Linda Smith of old seems long gone, replaced by this version, who endorses without consideration of the alternatives.
The last thing we need is someone who'll sell out her caucus to be "a friend to organized labor."
As Smith fades into the political twilight, I focus on her fine works for girls and women overseas. And then, I pause and wonder: whatever happened to the tough, independent outsider we all used to know and love... the one I worked so hard for back in '94?
