Long endorsed by Cantwell


September 26, 2018

Democratic candidate for Congress Carolyn Long announced her latest endorsement from a national Democratic leader, with Senator Maria Cantwell joining Long’s growing coalition of local, state, and national leaders. Cantwell joins Senators Patty Murray and Elizabeth Warren, Representatives Adam Smith and Ted Lieu, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson, and former Washington Governor Christine Gregoire in backing Long’s campaign to unseat four-term incumbent Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler.

“People in Southwest Washington deserve a leader like Carolyn Long who will work in a truly bipartisan fashion to look after the interests of hard-working middle-class families rather than the profits of corporations and shareholders. Carolyn will be a smart, passionate advocate in the other Washington who will stand up to the Trump Administration and fight for affordable healthcare, family wage jobs, apprenticeships, affordable housing, and the funding our schools need to give our students a quality education,” Cantwell said. “Having taught at WSU Vancouver for over 20 years shaping the lives of generations of students, Carolyn understands her community and knows what it will take to make Southwest Washington thrive. We must send Carolyn to Congress as the next Representative from the 3rd District. I look forward to partnering with her to strengthen Southwest Washington.”

“I’m proud to have the confidence of a dedicated public servant like Senator Cantwell who has spent years serving the families of Southwest Washington,” said Long. “I know Senator Cantwell will be a reliable ally in the Senate as we work together to bring my community the federal resources we need to improve the lives of working people from Goldendale to Ilwaco.”

Long’s grassroots, people-powered campaign has also earned the backing of dozens of national, state, and local organizations, including EMILY’s List, the Washington State Labor Council, and End Citizens United. Following Long’s strong showing in the primary, WA-03 was added to the DCCC’s Red-to-Blue list of targeted Congressional districts to flip this November.
