John Koster blames loss on state GOP leaders

Gee John it couldn't have been the rape comments could it?

Finger pointing has erupted in the Republican Party over John Koster's loss to Democrat Suzan DelBene in the 1st Congressional District.

Trailing 47-53 percent, Koster conceded the race Friday. But in a letter to supporters, he took shots at national and state Republican leaders.

"Neither the National Republican Congressional Committee nor the Washington State Republican Party (WSRP) stepped up to provide us with anything more than token support. To be frank, we were on our own, yet thanks to people such as you, we nearly overcame the odds," Koster wrote.

2. No help from the Republican Party?..........

Then who paid for the thousands of signs that littered our beautiful landscape here in N.W. Washington. He had so many signs, and I mean some really BIG signs, posted not only in the WA-1 but in areas that weren't even in his district.

3. Thank goodness that Democrat Suzan DelBene won Jay Inslee's seat in the 1st Congressional District.

So we still have our voice in D.C.

Koster, please take your whiney ass and jump into the graveyard of history, where you belong.

He most definitely had all the GOP/Teahadist support, including from the Dark Money, GOP Meth House brigades and every hate pundit.

5. She was definitely my favorite and I voted for her when I lived further away.

Strange thing, some union leaders I know (not in the state worker union) supported Dave Reichert in his race against her and nothing I said would change their minds. They were also saying they would not vote for Obama until the last moment, although they strongly supported Jay Inslee. Go figure. Suzan DelBene will be good, though.
