Donald Trump gave his 2020 State of the Union on Tuesday.
Hopefully it will be his last one.
He refused to shake the hand of the Speaker of the House, took credit for the turnaround in the economy which had been put in motion by the Obama administration. He bragged about assassinating a foreign leader in violation of international law, and took delight in the prospect of further eliminating options for women to make their own reproductive health choices.
It was an hour and a half of lies, backward thinking, manipulative reality TV moments, and attacks on women and our Democracy.
After listening closely to his braggadocio and falsehoods, one thing is certain: Trump will continue to deceive the American people and disgrace our democracy -- while Democrats have our neighbors’ backs on the issues that matter most.
Without a doubt, the 2020 Election has begun.
We have no choice but to do all that we can to get this president out of the White House and elect Democrats up and down the ticket.
Here in the 46th District, we are starting 2020 with a Presidential Primary outreach party next Tuesday (2/11) evening!
On February 11th, we will watch the New Hampshire results come in, and write postcards to our new neighbors in all of the hard-to-get-in-to-canvass apartment buildings popping up all over the district – let them know about the timeline to register to vote in the Presidential Primary and how to make sure their vote counts.
The party will be an open house at Elliott Bay Brewery from 5pm - 9pm on Tuesday - stop in early or later, for 10 minutes or for the whole time!
Come join us – come early and have dinner on us, or come later for a beverage (free non-alcoholic, or beer, wine, and cider available for purchase), write a few postcards to new voters in our neighborhoods, watch the New Hampshire returns on the big screen, and hear about how to run for delegate to the state or national Democratic conventions!
On the agenda is watching the New Hampshire Presidential Primary returns on the big screen, a brief overview of the new Presidential Primary, how to run for state or national delegate, and writing postcards to our neighbors in the new apartment buildings all over the district!
And we will have laptops available to vote in the King Conservation District election until 8pm!
This is a tiny little election that you all can vote in, but you rarely hear about, and under state law, it is not run by the election office! Find out more at the meeting.
All politics is local! Come gear up for victory in 2020 at our:
