This article has been updated since it was first posted with the following corrections:
Toby Nixon is a "former state representative". He did not lose his seat to Eric Oemig; both Oemig and he ran for the seat vacated by Sen. Bill Finkbeiner, who retired. Toby Nixon is running this year against Rep. Roger Goodman, who won the House seat Nixon vacated in 2006 to run for the Senate. (Many thanks to Toby Nixon for the corrections.)
Former state representative Toby Nixon (R-45) will attempt to regain the seat he gave up in 2006 to run for the Washington State Senate. His opponent will be Roger Goodman. In 2006, he ran against Eric Oemig for Sen. Bill Finkbeiner's senate seat and lost. Both Nixon and Oemig are pro-abortion.
Update: Roger Goodman is also pro-abortion.
Read Nixon's stand on "Abortion and Reproductive Rights" here.
Read our article and Nixon's juvenile "everybody else is jumping off the bridge" response to it here.
I had hoped that during his sabbatical from the legislature Nixon would have had time to read and reflect on the nature of freedom, justice and the limits of democracy. Just a suggestion -- maybe pick up a book on embryology. The flaws in Nixon's thinking are obvious and elementary so I won't detail them here. It's not that complicated really. We are talking about child murder after all.
Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby have the money and energy to support Goodman's reelection, and they will. The "pro-choice" voters Nixon thinks will come out and support him are a fantasy. Despairing pro-lifers will bring a few votes his way. Win or lose, D or R the 45th District will be safe seat for the abortion industry.
The better news is that the pro-life Michael Delavar will seek the Republican nomination the for the 3rd Congressional District seat held by Rep. Brian Baird.
