Russell is competing in the GOP Primary for the opportunity to succeed Democrat Congressman Brian Baird, who is retiring in 2010. The Cook Political Report keeps a close eye on all the races around the country, and Washington’s 3rd has been classified as a “toss-up” in the 2010 midterm election.
By signing the pledge, Mr. Russell has shown the taxpayers in Washington that he stands with them against tax increases. ATR encourages all candidates running in Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, and all Federal Office to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge.
