BELLEVUE, WA, July 29 – Susan Hutchison, the Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party, issued the following statement:
"A new Elway poll shows that Governor Jay Inslee is in trouble. An incumbent governor polling at 30% support with just a 41% job approval rating shows Inslee is super vulnerable.
"Voters are rejecting his extreme agenda of tax increases in favor of the Republican policies of funding education and reducing tuition without raising taxes.
"At this early stage, a generic Republican gets 25% of those polled, while Inslee only gets 30% - and this in a poll with a 4.5% margin of error! The nameless, faceless Republican is practically tied with Inslee!
"Inslee's disapproval rating keeps getting worse, and is now 55% - and only 17% of independents are inclined to vote for Inslee.
"All this is great news for the Republican Party."
