Today, CHC BOLD PAC, the campaign arm of the Hispanic Caucus, announced its endorsement of Kristine Reeves in Washington’s 10th Congressional District. In 2016, Kristine Reeves unseated a Republican incumbent and earned a seat in the Washington House of Representatives. If elected, Kristine would be the first Democratic Latina to represent Washington state in Congress.
“Kristine Reeves is a tested leader who has a track record of working to improve the lives of military families, fostering economic opportunity in her community, and standing up for workers,” said CHC BOLD PAC Chairman, Tony Cárdenas. “Kristine overcame incredible odds growing up and understands firsthand the struggles many families in her state are now facing. She has used her experience to lead and fight to improve the lives of families and children in her community and is now running for Congress to ensure the same opportunities offered to her exist for the next generation of Washingtonians. In Congress, whether it’s advocating for lower prescription drug prices and health care costs or fighting to give Washington workers a living wage, Kristine will continue to champion progressive causes on behalf of working families. ”
“Kristine Reeve is a dedicated public servant who knows how important access to quality education and affordable health care is to families. She will fight hard to ensure Washington families and children are guaranteed these crucial rights and have the opportunity to get ahead,” said CHC BOLD PAC Board Member, Linda Sánchez. “Kristine is the kind of leader Washington needs and she is someone working families in her state can count on, especially during these uncertain times. I’m proud BOLD PAC is standing with Kristine in her race for Congress. We are looking forward to having her as our colleague next Congress.”
Democrat Kristine Reeve is building a grassroots campaign in Washington’s 10th Congressional District race. Since announcing her bid for Congress earlier this year, she has earned the endorsement of various local labor groups and organizations, including LiUNA, the Teamsters Joint Council No. 28, and the Washington Education Association. She has also secured an endorsement from Congressman and Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Adam Smith.
