In 2010, Tim Wheeler and Joyce Wheeler worked in Democratic Senator Patty Murray‘s campaign in Sequim, Washington State.

Tim Wheeler wrote in the Peoples World:

The highest profile election victory here Nov. 2 was the reelection of Sen. Patty Murray…I was asked to coordinate street-corner “waves” for Murray here in my hometown…Washington State voters helped put up a firewall against the ultra-right in reelecting Murray, blocking a GOP majority takeover of the Senate. Victory was won when the coalition of unions and other progressive organizations succeeded in getting out the vote.

Tim Wheeler, his wife, and communist sister ”Honeybee Burns” are all active in the Clallam County (Washington) Democratic Party.
