Loren Culp says Facebook is going to de-platform his election page
According to information he released on Twitter, Culp, the former Police Chief from Republic, WA who ran against Inslee in 2020 for Governor, is having his Culp for Congress page removed.
As of this writing, 3 PM Monday, April 11th, the page is still active. He posted a message on Twitter that read in part (6 hours prior to 3PM:
"Just before my primary election in about 3 months from now, Facebook decides I should not be able to reach my 85,000+ followers or anyone else for that matter. Free and fair elections, right?"
No further concrete information is available, nor anything that can be confirmed. There is some speculation it's following his endorsement from former President Donald Trump, that perhaps it's 'fallout' from Trump being removed as well.
Culp has apparently reached out to find out why this is said to be happening.
Newhouse facing several challengers in the election
Rep. Newhouse came under intense fire from citizens in his District following his voting for the impeachment of Trump after he left office. He was one of the small group of GOP House Reps who were 'blistered' for voting for the measure. Newhouse is being challenged by current State House 8th District Rep Brad Klippert, besides Culp. Also Prosser businessman Jerrod Sessler is in the primary come later this summer.
Klippert announced his decision many months ago, following Newhouse's impeachment vote.
We will continue to monitor Culp's page and see what happens.
