Bellevue, August 27 – State GOP Chairman Susan Hutchison issued the following statement today:
“The Washington State Republican Party strongly supports the re-election of Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler. We stand with the voters of Clark County and the Third Congressional District.
“Congresswoman Herrera Beutler has served her district well since first being elected in 2010. As a result, she has overwhelming support in the district.
“In this year’s primary, she received 55% of the vote in a field of six candidates. She was the only Republican in the race, and she won all eight counties (including Clark County) covered by the Third Congressional District.
“In the general election, she faces far left Democrat Jim Moeller, who received only 24% of the vote in the primary.
“Our mission is to elect Republicans at every level of government. We support the re-election of all our state’s Republican members of Congress serving in Washington, D.C. We enthusiastically back Congresswoman Herrera Beutler. We honor her service and look forward to her re-election in November.
“I give her my personal endorsement as Chairman of the State GOP.”
