Arlington, WA, August, 25, 2010 - In the latest primary election numbers released by the Secretary of State, Republican John Koster has taken a 161 vote lead over 10 year incumbent Democrat Rick Larsen in the battle to represent Washington's 2nd District in Congress.
The results may not be final for a few more days, but Koster's lead should continue to grow slightly as the late ballot counting has favored Koster and there are only a few outstanding ballots left to be counted.
"These results clearly show momentum for the Koster message and a rejection of Rick Larsen and Nancy Pelosi's big government agenda. Voters in the 2nd District are tired of being represented by someone who doesn't share their values", stated Koster. "Time and time again, Rick Larsen has chosen to follow Nancy Pelosi and the liberal leaders of his party, rather than do what's best for the people he's been trusted to represent."
Koster, a Snohomish County Councilman and former state representative, has a potent grassroots campaign team that is up and running throughout the entire 2nd District. "People are hungry to elect public servants that will listen to them. Politicians in Washington, DC have not been listening; Rick Larsen has not been listening. I am listening and I hear the voters loud and clear - and they have had their fill of radical policies that have resulted in 16.5% unemployment and a $13 trillion national debt."
"Voters of all political persuasions are realizing that Rick Larsen and other DC politicians have us on the wrong track and they are ready to vote for candidates who will be fiscally responsible and put people back to work."
"There is still a lot of work to be done before November. I appreciate and thank all of those who have supported me so far. Now it's on to Election Day and victory for the people of the 2nd District."
