Gregoire, others endorse DelBene for Congress

The DelBene for Congress campaign announced Wednesday that Gov. Chris Gregoire and Congressmen Jay Inslee, Rick Larsen, Jim McDermott and Adam Smith have endorsed Suzan DelBene.

DelBene, a Medina resident, is running in the 8th Congressional District for the U. S. House of Representatives. The district includes most of Bellevue.

Rep. Dave Reichert of Auburn currently holds the seat.

“Creating jobs, promoting innovation, and delivering affordable healthcare must be our priorities,” said DelBene. “These endorsements stand as a reflection of a shared vision for our future and are an important step forward for my campaign.

I welcome the opportunity to work with these leaders to tackle the many challenges we face,” DelBene added. “They are some of the most dedicated elected officials we have, representing voters from across the state, and I’m extremely grateful for their support.”

Other endorsements include:

King County Executive Dow Constantine, King County Councilmember Larry Phillips, Deputy King County Executive and former State Sen. Fred Jarrett, State Rep. Judy Clibborn, 41st Legislative District and State Rep. Ross Hunter, 48th Legislative District.
