Are Clark County candidates voting For the most part

first_imgJoey Gibson, founder of the group Patriot Prayer, wants his supporters to get out the vote in August. He’s one of several Republican candidates seeking to unseat three-time incumbent Sen. Maria Cantwell — even if, as he said when he announced his candidacy, it would “take a miracle” for him to win.“Make sure you are registered to vote in the State of Washington,” reads a post on his “Joey Gibson For U.S. Senate” Facebook page from July 2.Gibson’s plea to voters sits at odds with the candidate’s own record, however. According to Clark County voting records, the first — and only — election that Gibson voted in was the 2016 general election.When asked why he didn’t vote prior to 2016, Gibson aired some common grievances: he felt like his vote didn’t matter; he felt like the system was rigged; he felt like Republicans and Democrats were working together.Donald Trump, on the other hand, “was an outsider… someone who the Republicans and the Democrats hated,” Gibson said, adding that seeing Trump’s supporters being attacked in the streets by protestors “fired me up in a way that I’d never been fired up.”last_img
