I will not be nice and respectful of Jay Inslee
Watch the video above to hear my closing statement at Governor’s debate on Friday. I want your feedback — what do you think?
Our side is too nice.
We’ve done nice.
We’ve done respectful.
It didn’t work.

I will not be nice and respectful of Jay Inslee.
I’ve been very consistent on this.
After my kick-off speech in Yakima a few weeks ago, I said: “People that have run against the Democrats all have one thing in common: they’re good, decent people that are incredibly polite, incredibly respectful … and that hasn’t worked out so well. Clearly, I’ve made it clear I’m going to be a very, very aggressive candidate when it comes to running against (current governor) Jay Inslee.”
This is how to win the election.
Running a successful statewide political campaign is hard. I’ve done 17 of them. Each one had unique challenges, I learned from each one. I consistently built winning coalitions of voters — R’s, I’s, & D’s — by appealing to them based on policies and principles, not party or partisanship. I focused on issues like fairness and equality and government accountability which resonates with voters across the political spectrum.
And we’ve won — a lot. (https://tim4gov.com/wp-
That’s why I’m constantly attacked by politicians and the press — it’s because they’re frustrated that so many voters continually ignore them and help us score victory after victory for the people. The $30 Tabs Initiative campaign is a perfect example. They threw the kitchen sink at me — $5 million on attack ads, endless TV-radio-print-social-media “news” stories about the AG’s political attacks on me and my family, the chair (ahh yes, the chair), the Skagit Valley bridge, the fake state trooper, the city of Olympia’s illegal mailers, and other mudslinging.
They tried it all.
And it didn’t work.
We won another victory for the people. And I came out stronger than ever.
Why? Because voters are a lot smarter than they’re given credit for. They know what’s real and what’s not — what’s important and what’s not.
I weathered the storm, never backed down, stay focused, and delivered results. It’s what I’ve been doing for 20 years as an activist, and it’s exactly what I’ll continue to do as your Governor.
I’m not just someone who can win this election, I’m also someone who will be the kind of Governor who will actually solve problems politicians won’t. Reducing taxes, controlling spending, decreasing traffic congestion, protecting our constitutional rights, and reducing crime, homelessness, and illegal immigration to keep citizens safe. I know we can solve these problems as long as we stay positive, stay focused, and are willing to fight for them.
I ask you to do 2 things:
1) If you support my First Amendment right to continue fighting for taxpayers as an activist and as Governor, then please donate $30 (or more) to my campaign (credit card or PayPal here: Tim4Gov.com/donate or mail checks to: Governor Eyman for WA, PO Box 2107, Olympia, WA, 98507). Your contribution tells Jay Inslee he’s failed us.
2) Forward/share today’s update with friends, family, and co-workers. Help us get the word out. Make sure to send them this “one page” about my race for Governor: https://tim4gov.com/wp-
If you oppose Jay Inslee getting 4 more years, then please donate $30 (or more) today (Tim4Gov.com/donate) and convince others to do the same.

I love you all.
