I’m Congresswoman Suzan DelBene of Washington. Before coming to Congress, I was an entrepreneur.  I know that innovation is at the heart of who we are as Americans – and it is essential to keeping American workers, American products and American ideas number one in the 21st century.

A decade ago, House Democrats enacted the first Innovation Agenda. With the majority, we made revolutionary investments in clean energy development, in affordable, world-class STEM education, and in expanding broadband to rural families.

And House Democrats will work with President Hillary Clinton to sustain America’s lead in innovation – creating good-paying jobs, powering our economy, and driving bold solutions to the challenges facing our climate and our communities.

A strong America – an America that’s “Stronger Together” – will lead the world in entrepreneurship, innovation and clean energy.

The Seattle Times Endorses Congresswoman DelBene in the 2016 Primary

From the Seattle Times Editorial Board:

The boundaries of the 1st Congressional District were redrawn in 2012 to ensure the region had at least one “swing” district equally competitive to both parties.

It says quite a bit about U.S. Rep Suzan DelBene that the district appears now to be firmly hers. With a solid legislative record over two terms, and minimal competition this year, DelBene easily earns an endorsement for a third term.
