Steve Beren for Congress in 7th District

We will have a choice versus Baghdad Jim McDermott in Congress in Seattle and Lake Forest Park. Steve Beren is running as a write-in candidate. Steve is a good man and a good communicator of conservative principles. His statement on Facebook:
Yesterday afternoon, I went to Olympia and filed for official status as a write-in candidate for U.S. Congress against incumbent Democrat Jim McDermott. I am the only Republican candidate in the race. If I get enough votes in the August 17 primary, I will be on the ballot in the general election. Please write in "Steve Beren" for Congress. Spread the word in order to help get out the vote. And please consider a generous donation - if my campaign raises enough money, we will do a radio ad blitz in the Seattle area between now and the primary. You can donate online at http://www.BerenForCongress.com/donate or you can send a check to the address in the signature block below. I'm a pro-liberty "five star conservative" and grassroots Tea Party activist. I'm for economic growth, job creation, lower taxes, and limited government. We need a conservative Republican majority in Congress to repeal Obamacare, to defeat cap and trade, and to block amnesty for illegal immigrants. My write-in campaign offers a stark contrast and clear alternative to Jim McDermott, who fully supports the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda of wasteful spending, soaring unemployment, higher taxes, massive deficits, and restrictions on liberty. This progressive agenda has been disastrous for the American economy, causing immense suffering for families, homeowners, and small business. Our constitution is the guiding document of this great nation. The answer to the challenges facing our nation will be found, not in more government bureaucracy, but in reliance on constitutional principles and in a free market economic system based on liberty.
