There must be a better strategy.
Instead, local Republicans keep pulling a General Custer in an attempt to dethrone Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler.
It might be a reasonable desire – if Herrera Beutler were not a member of their own party. And if she had not been elected to Congress six times. And if it were not built upon lies and enmity and general nuttiness.
Alas, a faction of local Republicans – a small faction, we can hope – has fallen victim to the virus that is infecting party members throughout the country.
“You are ready to engage in the battle,” Heidi St. John feverishly said. “The left is trying to take our nation off of a cliff.”
St. John was speaking at a recent candidate forum featuring Republicans hoping to unseat Herrera Beutler in 2022. Three candidates thus far have announced that they are running for the seat, and the only thing they appear to have in common – aside from a lack of qualifications – is ridiculous rhetoric.
