Likely primary-voting Democratic and independent voters across the district who are women over 50 or college-educated need to read and see that Marilyn Strickland has a record of getting progressive results.

As Mayor, she rebuilt Tacoma while tackling climate change, raising the minimum wage, and increasing graduation rates.

Strickland is endorsed by former Governors Christine Gregoire and Gary Locke because they know Strickland is a progressive leader who will work with others to get things done.

Strickland will be the first African-American ever elected to Congress from Washington State and the first Korean-American woman elected nationwide.

Strickland will fight for universal health care, lower health care and prescription drug costs, and a clean energy future.

Now more than ever, we need progressive leaders like Strickland who fight for justice and progressive change for everyone.
