Winning the WA-02 Primary

by Rick Larsen

I want to thank the voters of the 2nd District for putting their faith in me. Our team helped to make nearly 2,500 calls and knock on more than 3,800 doors to get out the vote in their communities and highlight our vision for our future. We could not have done this without the hard work of staff and volunteers.

I am determined to prove to my constituents that their government works for them. That starts with strengthening the middle class, and building an economy that creates jobs by investing in infrastructure, makes education affordable and accessible, and increases skills and training opportunities that prepare our workforce to compete.

But strengthening our middle class also means fighting for people whose voices too often go unheard: protecting women’s rights and the rights of our LGBTQ communities, ensuring our veterans have access to the care they’ve earned, strengthening the Voting Rights Act, and addressing opioid addiction and homelessness in our communities. It also means working together for sensible solutions to prevent gun violence. And none of this will succeed if we do not get serious about climate change, which is the largest environmental issue facing the nation.

Tonight’s victory will help us continue to build momentum as we head into the fall and general election. This job is a privilege and I take nothing for granted. I will continue to work for every vote, every day.
