Statement: Hi, I'm Thor Amundson, native son, born and raised in Eastern Washington. I've lived and worked throughout the state, and this has given me the opportunity to talk with people in all walks of life, and to consider the variety of issues facing them. I see my primary duty as Senator as being on the ultimate betterment project for our state and country. I believe that without a little more opportunity for the next generation, we cannot have a healthy civilization.
Picture a state and a nation where your children will be able to afford to live. A land without discrimination, and where the working person receives their just reward. A place where worker's rights are protected; where innovative, effective leadership inspires; and where elected officials are chosen by the people, not by their financial contributors.
Rather than propose campaign reform, I'm going to implement it. I am not an attorney, and I am not a politician. Therefore, there will be no question about who I am working for. I will accept no PAC money whatsoever in my bid for US. Senate. I will lead Washington into the 21st century. Only your vote for Thor Amundson, for U.S. Senate, is required to make this possible.
True leadership is an extension of the will of the people. With my mandate from you, the voters, I will express that will. As the first Senator not financed by PAC money, and hailing from one of the best states in the Union, I will stir the very dredges of the old guard in Washington D.C., and at the same time provide inspiration to anyone else who truly cares about the future of our great Nation. Please vote for Thor Amundson, U.S. Senate.
