Dick Muri is yet another Common Sense Conservative who has been quietly taking on an entrenched incumbent Washington State democrat, off the national radar.
Even though Muri has been outspent 6:1, and his democrat opponent has been running wildly untrue attack ads against him, Real Clear Politics has rated this race a toss-up. Taking into consideration that most polls over-sample democrats, and the fact that even in dark blue Washington State, enthusiasm for common sense over the democrat agenda is off the charts, this is a winnable race.
From our friends on the ground in Washington:
Ret. Lt Col Dick Muri is within 3 points of 14 yr Democrat "Pelosi rubber stamped" incumbent Adam Smith in Washington States 9th Congressional District race.
With your help we can take this seat!! The race has moved to a tossup!
Adam Smith has a 6:1 fund raising advantage. He is flooding the TV stations, including Fox news channel with an attack ad with false information about Dick Muri.
In Smith's ads, he is selling himself as an "Independent Voice" and "Fiscal Hawk". Nowhere does it say the word "Democrat" much less that he has voted with Pelosi 96% of the time.
Here’s a Tacoma News Tribune editorial that debunks the lies in Adam Smith's Attack ads against Dick Muri.
Lt. Col. Muri has been endorsed by Sarah Palin as one of the Combat Veterans For Congress, a program designed to help our bravest who have wanted to continue their service to our nation, as members of Congress.
Mary Muri and I were invited to be honored as one of twenty Combat Veterans for Congress endorsed candidates on the 9th of October in San Diego, California. Sarah Palin was one of the guest speakers at this fund raising gala event.
We had a few minutes to talk to her and have our picture taken. Governor Palin first words were "we need to get you and Dino Rossi elected". I told her I was born in the Territory of Alaska in Fairbanks, Alaska in 1953. She immediately calculated the date and said, "was your father serving in the Air Force during the Korean War"?
She was 100% correct, as my father was serving at Ladd Air Force Base in Alaska for two years, went home for a quick one week leave to Framingham, MA to get married. Married my mom on 22 March 1953 and I was born 9 months later!
My mom waited 4 months until Airman 2nd class Joe Muri could get housing and moved to Fairbanks in July 1953 four months pregnant! Sarah Palin greeted all 20 of us Combat Veteran Candidates with enthusiasm and nice humor
I agree with Sarah, we need to get Dino Rossi and Dick Muri elected. We can do it, but we need your help. Again, Muri is being outspent 6:1 by a typical democrat who has no problem smearing his competition with lies, even after major publications in the state have called him out. It seems a democrat is a democrat is a democrat. They all must go!
In that spirit, I'd like to announce the Dick Muri Money Bomb!
As this is Washington's 9th District, we're asking everyone who can to send $9 (or more) to Dick's campaign:
This is a winnable race, and a win in deep blue Washington State will send an even stronger message to the Obama regime. Adding another strong Common Sense Conservative to Congress will have the added bonus of sending a message to the GOP elites as well. Both will know doing business as usual is finished. Not going to happen!

Here is Dick's latest video ad:
There's a whole lot of races out there and a whole lot of activity in the final weeks of this most important election season, but of all of the wins, this will be one of the sweetest.
We can send a Common Sense Conservative, in place of a radical democrat, to become a member of the 112th Congress from one of the bluest states in the nation. That will be a sweet victory indeed.

I don't know about y'all, but I'm ready to party like it's ‘94 .... 1894!
