Last night, Suzan DelBene won the Democratic nomination in Washington State’s 8th Congressional District. Now, she needs your support to defeat Republican Rep. Dave Reichert in November. DelBene is strong supporter of progressive foreign policies, whereas Reichert has earned a 14% on the PeacePAC voting record over his three terms in office.
Council for a Livable World has endorsed Suzan DelBene for Congress because she is a quality candidate that can be elected the next Representative of the 8th Congressional District. This progressive Democrat supports President Obama’s vision of a nuclear weapons free world. She also opposed the invasion of Iraq and supports vigorous pursuit of a negotiated solution to the diplomatic stand-off with Iran.
DelBene faces a tough general election against Reichert, who had $1 million in his campaign account as of July. With your support, DelBene can run a competitive campaign and have a real chance to win this Congressional District seat for Democrats.
Reichert has served three terms, but this district has been growing steadily more Democratic. In 2000, just 33% of the state legislative seats in this district were held by Democrats. Today Democrats represent 70% of the legislative seats there. This trend puts DelBene in a strong position to defeat Congressman Reichert.
Remember that 100% of your contributions to candidates go directly to their campaigns; Council for a Livable world does not take a penny.
