7th Congressional District candidate Steve Beren has released a radio ad … His -second ad, which he is running on local radio channels starting this week, urges Seattle's heavily Democratic voters: "C'mon, vote Republican for a change!"
He's running against 10-term incumbent Jim McDermott, a liberal Democrat….
[Beren’s] he's running an active campaign and has been trying … to get McDermott to debate him.
Beren finished the primary better than McDermott's other four challengers….
His radio ad, which you can hear at http://www.berenforcongress.com/sounds/Beren092208Energy.mp3 is about Beren's plan to drill more domestic oil. "I'll help John McCain and Sarah Palin shake things up," he says.

Steve Beren's ad tells it like it is. Americans (yes those in Seattle too) are hurting from the double edged sword of high oil prices and the fact that we are buying oil from our enemies to enrich an embolden Middle Eastern Interests that are antithetical to our own….. Steve understands that we should use American Resources for Americans to better our way of life. Paying our enemies to supply our energy, especially when they rap the earth with their primitive methods of extraction is scary and stupid when Americans can use both the oil and the thousands and thousands of jobs this would create if we drill responsibly everywhere there is oil. Go Steve! You are a voice of reason in a sea of broken logic!

…We need true leaders in this region…. Beren rocks. Jim McDermott won't even debate him, what a COWARD! Citizens of Seattle, you who always pride yourself on diversity, for once in your life permit some diversity of thought and force Jim to debate.
