It’s far past time for Joe Kent to drop out of the CD3 race.
Joe is flatly and utterly unelectable. The most he can hope for is to get Jaime Herrera Beutler reelected. At worst, he will get Democrat Marie Gluesenkamp Perez elected and flip the seat blue. It’s increasingly clear that the only hope for avoiding a Democrat seat-flip or another term for an incumbent RINO is for Kent to drop-out and support Heidi St. John.
Kent’s dirty-tricks campaign and his attacks on job creators grew thin a year ago. But his relentless calling for re-litigating the 2020 presidential election absolutely guarantees that neither mainstream Republicans in the primary nor Democrats and independents in the general election will support him, if by some miracle he wins the primary.
His was an ill-conceived candidacy from day one. Kent entered the campaign with absolutely no knowledge or experience in the district and a shady past as a registered Democrat, a Bernie Sanders voter and perhaps most of all, a background as a CIA spook.
The time has come for Republicans throughout the district to demand Joe’s withdrawal from the campaign and his full-throated support for Heidi St. John if conservatives are to have any chance to avoid reelecting a RINO or flipping the seat Democratic. Joe Kent claims to be an “America First” conservative. Now, let’s see if he is willing to pursue what’s best for Southwest Washington ahead of his own selfish ambition.
