District 3 Primary Results
Dan Christopher (R) 53% 1554 votes
Jim Sizemore (R) 28% 827 votes
Miland Walling (D) 17% 497 votes
The primary election was a huge victory for our people as we received tremendous bipartisan support. We finished with 53.8% of the vote in a 3 person race. Our campaign had 1554 votes and our establishment republican opponent Mr. Sizemore only had 28.6% or 827 votes. We beat him by 727 votes. That’s huge! It was the largest primary victory in our county in decades. We won 9 out of 10 precincts by large numbers. The only precinct we lost was the tiny far eastern family precinct of Alderdale with their 36 total votes. Alderdale is also home to one of my opponents rich special intrest campaign contributors.
I am asking you to look at the primary results. Have faith in the democrat and republican voters of District 3. They are the people that know the District 3 candidates best. They are the people that work and live with the candidates. They are the people that know our hearts.
Yeah see a small group of republican "Good Old Boys" run the show, and call the shots in district 3. They pick who runs for office and who wins. Under their control district 3 has become a community of poverty and despair. It’s wrong, and our people need help.
Now the economic disparity they are causing may serve some of these "Good Old Boys" well finically, but the people of District 3 have had enough. Our people are tired of the fear, pressure, and intimidation that this group uses to get their way. Our voters are now dealing with this group using voter intimidation, and voter suppression to try and steal this election for their candidate. Our people fear being fired, kicked out of their homes or their business ruined if they publicly support our campaign in any way. These “Good Old Boy” tactics to maintain control are disgusting!
But our people’s voices will be heard. If you look at the primary election results, you will hear them shouting from the rooftops for your help.
The voters in district 3 want change. They need change. Don’t force upon them a leader that 3 out of 4 voters say they don’t want. That’s just wrong! Help our people, honor our people, honor their vote!
A vote for Dan Christopher in district 3, is a vote that helps “ALL” of our people both democrat and republican!
I will not serve the "Good Old Boys", the corperations, or the special intrests. Trust me, that scares the heck out of them. That's why they are trying to slander my good name along with trying to buy their votes in District 1 and 2. I will always fight for our people!
“The residents of Klickitat County District 3 deserve a strong leader that will fight for them and not against them. Because being a leader is not about being in charge, its about taking care of the people in your charge." – Dan Christopher
