#WA03Debate: Long Walked Away from Today’s Debate Victorious
Carolyn Long Showed She’ll Stand up for Southwest Washington
VANCOUVER, WA — During today’s debate, Carolyn Long triumphed. Congresswoman Herrera Beutler failed to defend her record and showed the district that they are ready for a leader. Carolyn Long for Congress campaign manager Abby Olmstead released the following statement on Carolyn’s victory in the WA-03 debate:
“Carolyn won today’s debate by demonstrating she’ll put Southwest Washington first, that she’s ready to deliver. She also held Jaime Herrera Beutler accountable for being bought out by corporate special interests, buying into Donald Trump, and selling out Southwest Washington.
“Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler acted just how we predicted: like a typical D.C. politician. She made a career in D.C. taking money from Corporate PACs and then voting their way – from the massive tax giveaway to her corporate donors to bragging about voting to dismantle the Affordable Care Act more than 80 times and voting repeatedly to eliminate protections for Washingtonians with pre-existing conditions.
“She’s turned into a creature of D.C. and a rubber stamp for Donald Trump. Ballots drop next week, and the choice is clear. From her innovative town halls to her community coffees, and now this debate, Carolyn has proven she’s the strongest person to fight for Southwest Washington in the U.S. House of Representatives.”
