TWEETFEST - July 12th!

Tomorrow, The House Oversight and Government Reform (OGR) Committee will have public hearings on the First Amendment Defense Act.
This hearing is the first step to getting to our goal: a full House vote on FADA.
Chairman Jason Chaffetz and the other Republican committee members need to hear from you on the need to pass FADA out of committee. That is why Heritage Action is hosting a Tweetfest using the hashtag #VoteonFADA .
The Tweetfest will be held Tuesday, July 12th, from 12pm to 2pm ET. Use the hashtag #VoteonFADA to contribute to the conversation.

ON TO THE WSRP STATE CONVENTION AND PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY!
Last Saturday, March 26, the Benton County Republican Party (BCRP) held their county convention at the Red Lion Hotel at Columbia Center.
The county convention delegates approved the 2016 BCRP Platform and elected 53 delegates and 53 alternates to the Washington State Republican Party State Convention, which will be held May 19-21 in Tri-Cities.
On May 24, just 3 days after the state convention, Washington State voters will have the opportunity to cast their vote for their respective party's presidential nominee.
THE CAUCUSES ARE OVER. NOW WHAT?
On Saturday, February 20th, the Washington State Republican Party held precinct caucuses in every county to review the proposed 2016 county party platforms and elect delegates and alternates to the respective county conventions.
In Benton County, we elected more than 350 delegates and alternates to the Benton County Republican Convention, which will be held on Saturday, March 26th. At the convention, we will vote to approve the 2016 BCRP Platform.
At the county convention, we will also be electing delegates and alternates to the Washington State Republican Party State Convention, which will be held in the Tri-Cities, May 19-21.
Our state convention will be held just days before our state's presidential primary on Tuesday, May 24th. What is particularly significant about this is that delegates who are elected to the national convention, are bound to vote for the winner of the state primary. IF there is a tie, and it goes to a second ballot, the delegates are released from that and can vote for their personal preference.
THE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN
We are less than one year away from the most important election of our lifetime! Regardless of your age, this is THE election. This election will determine whether America will be restored or lost on the rubbish heap of history.
Washington State faces an important election as well. Not only is it a gubernatorial election, but most state-wide positions are up for election --
