Politics More Bush Visit Pushback
The state Democratic party is now complaining that in order to be in Medina for his big fund-raiser last Friday with the Commander in Chief, eastside Congressman Dave Reichert skipped out on a Congressional vote on the Iraq War.
“Republican leaders said this was an important vote, but apparently it wasn’t important enough for Dave Reichert to attend,” said Dwight Pelz, Chair of the Washington State Democrats. “The American public is fed up with the Bush administration and Republican leaders for their poor handling of the war. They expect their leaders in Congress to come up with a successful strategy, not fill their campaign warchests with the man who led us into this failed strategy in the first place.”
