Biographical
General (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)

Fellow Washingtonians,

Never before have we faced the size and scope of the challenges before us. A job market more difficult than ever, an economy on the brink, an endless war with no sign of progress, healthcare still unaffordable and out of reach for millions, shrinking budgets for education, law enforcement, and communities, and one of the worst environmental disasters in our Nation's history-- these are but a few of the issues that affect us all.

I am running for US Senator because I want to lead our State and our Nation in a new direction. I will work to rebuild our manufacturing base, expand our aerospace, agriculture, and technology industries, and restore an inventive and entrepreneurial spirit to all businesses that call Washington home. I will immediately propose legislation to dramatically cut Federal spending and reduce our national debt. I'll fight to protect our environment, reform American energy policy, and lay the building blocks of a green economy. I commit to rapidly and responsibly ending a decade of war. I will work to improve the health of all Americans, ensuring that medical care is available and accessible to all. I pledge to pass legislation to make in-state college tuition free for all of our high school graduates. And I will work to ensure that Washington's teachers, police, and fire departments are fully funded, trained, and equipped to educate, protect, and build stronger communities.

I'll be fully transparent and accountable to the people of Washington, ushering in an era of openness in Congress that you've only dreamed of. You deserve-- and you'll receive-- full access to me, 24/7/365.

This year, you have a choice. Let's work together to build a better future for Washington, and for America.
