Democrat Jason Ritchie, who is challenging Dave Reichert for Congress, sent the following email, asking that you join him in demanding that Dave Reichert meet him in a debate.
Over the past six years Congressman Dave Reichert has done one debate and zero open town halls. He’s refused to answer questions publicly or even respond to my request for a debate.
After opposing equal pay for women, marriage equality, and a fair minimum wage, and after wasting 24 billion taxpayer dollars shutting down the government, is it any wonder he is shying away from the public eye?
He should be afraid to debate that record. That’s why I’m challenging Dave Reichert for Congress.
I believe it is the responsibility of any person seeking elected office to stand up and debate the issues. If you can’t explain your positions then you haven’t earned your seat.
Instead, Reichert chooses to ignore constituents and marches in lockstep with Tea Party extremists. The people of the 8th Congressional District deserve answers. Click here to add your voice and demand Dave Reichert debate.
I’ll debate Dave anywhere, anytime. I’m not afraid to talk about the values I believe in: equality, economic fairness, and an end to gridlock.
Our district is one of only 17 districts in the entire country where President Obama won and a Republican congressman holds office. We can turn this district blue with your help. We can make sure our country has a congress that wants to work, not obstruct.
The people of the 8th district need your help and I know we can count on you.
