Seattle Times letters to the editor

Rob McKenna’s advice for Washington state Republicans

Tactics aren’t the main problem When I saw that Rob McKenna used terms like “reset button” and “sober reflection” to introduce his recent Times guest column on the state GOP, I thought perhaps he and his fellow Republicans may be having a true awakening regarding the unfortunate path the GOP has taken in recent years, especially…

Dino Rossi’s defeat and the GOP

We wanted to know the issues What an utterly tone-deaf analysis by State Attorney General Rob McKenna as to why Republican gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi was defeated [“State GOP confident despite loss,” Politics, Nov. 9]. I voted for McKenna but will not make that mistake again. McKenna thinks Rossi ran a “very good campaign.” There was nothing…

Seattle Times’ defense of gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi

No exceptions to campaign finance rules Gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi and The Times certainly seem to have an unusual opinion about “campaign finance rules” [“Dino Rossi vs. the lawyers,” Editorial, Oct. 29]. In September 2007 it was reported the Forward Washington Foundation paid Rossi $75,000 for serving half-time as president. Dino Rossi stated that he had not…

Dino Rossi’s deposition

Ken Lambert / The Seattle Times Dino Rossi, Republican candidate for governor, gestures during a news conference after giving a deposition for a lawsuit that accuses the Building Industry Association of Washington of illegally raising money for his campaign.

Governor’s race

Don’t vote for Dino In my 62 years of political observation, I have never seen such a sleazy campaign as gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi’s. Having acquired $1.6 million from Las Vegas casinos, including $300,000 from Venetian casino owner Sheldon Adelson, $3 million from the Republican Governor’s Association and another $7 million from the BIAW [Business Industry Association…

Election endorsements

So right, yet so wrong Kudos to you on your recent endorsements. I totally agree with the endorsements of Sam Reed and Rob McKenna as they have a track of proven records year after year [“Rob McKenna for attorney general,” editorial, Oct. 21; “Sam Reed should be re-elected,” editorial, Oct. 20]. They have been very effective…

Governor’s race

Don’t undermine your beliefs Anyone who is paying any attention for the past eight years realizes that the negative economic indicators (unemployment, financial-market crisis, energy cost, revenue shortfalls) are the result of the failed Republican policies in Washington, D.C., not Gov. Christine Gregoire as gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi’s ads incorrectly claim [“Rossi for governor,” Times,…

Governor’s race

Spend smarter While I’m not sure how many “regular citizens” would repeat Forbes Magazine rankings and have specific-state-spending figures at their finger tips, and list them in the same order, these letter submitters are missing the major issues in the race for governor. The main reason The Times endorsed gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi is that they have…
