It's General Election Time in WA-08

This past week, Dr. Kim Schrier secured the nomination to become the Democratic candidate for Congress in our neighboring swing district, WA-08. This is a crucial development in the effort to take back the House and ensure a Congress that holds Trump Administration policies in check.

This will be a highly competitive general election, and Schrier's Republican opponent Dino Rossi has already gotten a big head start due to lack of competition on his side. Here are a few quick actions you can take right now to flip the 8th district:

1. Sign up to volunteer directly with the Kim Schrier campaign: https://go.drkimschrier.com/page/s/volunteer

2. Donate (if you are able). SwingLeft includes this race in their Immediate Impact Fund*, which means even a small donation goes a long way: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/kimschrier
