Obama Endorses Long


October 3, 2018

Former President Barack Obama announced his support for Democratic candidate Carolyn Long Monday in his second wave of endorsements for the 2018 midterm elections.

“I’m deeply grateful for President Obama’s support for our campaign,” Long said. “I’ve long been an admirer of his collaborative approach to politics and how he consistently worked to reverse the disturbing trend of growing polarization in our national political debate.”

Long is the first candidate since WA-03 was redrawn after the 2010 census to mount a credible challenge to incumbent Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, receiving 35 percent of the August primary vote.
