We’re in Spokane for our State Convention. Chair Jaxon Ravens got the chance to meet 6th District State Senate candidate Rich Cowan and sent out the following email asking Democrats to support Rich for State Senate.
Want to know how extreme the Republicans are in our State Senate? Here are some “ideas” coming from Michael Baumgartner, State Senator from the 6th District in Spokane:
- The unemployed should be required to perform public service before getting unemployment benefits.
- Washington should be a right-to-work state. Don’t we want workers to have collective bargaining rights?
- The State Supreme Court is like dictators Mugabe and Putin. Because they’re serious about funding our schools.
In a little over three years, Michael Baumgartner has defined himself as one of the most outspoken voices against Democratic values in our State Senate.
We’re in Spokane for our State Convention, and everybody is talking about Rich Cowan.
Rich is a native Spokane film and television producer who challenged Cathy McMorris Rodgers in 2012 and developed a taste for taking on the right wing.
Believing that he could do the most good for our state by helping to take back our Senate, he began campaigning last August and has already raised over $122,000 and knocked on over 9,000 doors himself.
Rich has been all over the news recently because he just began filming his latest project, Spokane’s first television series called Z-Nation, which has created 200 crew jobs and 200 acting jobs that pay a family wage with health care and benefits! 1,300 people in the Spokane area are also eagerly signing up to serve as “zombie” extras on the show.
Rich is doing all he can to take back our State Senate. He knows “zombies” belong on the big screen, not in Olympia!
