A few weeks ago, I was endorsed by The Seattle Times. When I read this morning’s paper, I was excited to see that The News Tribune has one again endorsed my reelection campaign as well! Here’s a brief snippet of what they wrote:
Lucky for the 31st, it has two state representatives, Republicans Drew Stokesbary and Morgan Irwin . . . Both are exceptionally bright standard bearers for the millennial generation, both have young families and both win our endorsement in the Nov. 6 election.
Stokesbary, 33, has capably represented House Position 1 for two terms. No doubt the lawyer had many options after graduating cum laude from the University of Notre Dame, but he zeroed in on public service.
This Auburn Republican has demonstrated political acumen that puts him on the fast track to GOP leadership. He was already promoted to House minority floor leader this year.
Stokesbary’s missteps have been few. When he votes, it generally comes after thoughtful consideration. He’s agile on an array of issues, from health care to transportation with an ear tuned to middle-class concerns.
[His opponent] can’t match Stokesbary’s growing influence or grasp of policy details.
