Congratulations to Dave Reichert and Karen Porterfield, who appear to be headed into the general election. The election results were disappointing but consider what we achieved. In 90 days, we managed to establish a volunteer base, deploy signs all around the district, visit numerous community events, walk in parades, run a TV commercial (unusual for an independent campaign), meet with countless voters in a highly personal way in the coffee shop campaign, attract national media attention, and built lasting relationships with businesses and people all over the 8th district. Thanks to my wife and family for their support. Tiffany Windle-Hanson, my sister and campaign manager, did a fantastic job. To all of the Windependents, thanks for your donations, encouragement, hard work, and support. This has been one of the most amazing experiences of my professional life. We are pioneers in bringing independent ideas back into politics. This is the beginning, not the end.
