In Washington State, GOP members of Congress Dave Reichert, Jamie Herrera Beutler, Dan Newhouse, and especially Cathy McMorris Rodgers must be defeated in 2018.
But that takes hard work and resources NOW, in 2017, to:
In 2017 we have three SIGNIFICANT State Senate races that will have HUGE impacts on our ability in Washington State to protect heath care for Washingtonians and ultimately block the impacts of TrumpCare if it passes. These races are:
#1 – Manka Dhingra in the 45th LD
#2 – Michelle Rylands in the 31st LD
#3 – Karen Hardy in the 7th LD
