BOTHELL – U.S. Representative Suzan DelBene (WA-01) released the following statement following her victory in the 2016 general election:

“I am honored that the voters of the First Congressional District have re-elected me to Congress for a third full term. In the 115th Congress I will continue to work on building an economy that works for everyone, fighting for equality, and passing comprehensive immigration reform. We can only make progress on these and so many other issues when our leaders commit to work together to move our country forward. I continue to be committed to doing just that.”

From the Bellingham Herald:

District 1: U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene, D-Medina, has served her district well. She understands the impact immigration reform has on farm labor. She has tangible projects, such as affordable textbooks, for helping higher education. She supports action on climate change. Challenger Robert Sutherland, R-Granite Falls, has never held elected office and says scientists should be looking at humidity rather than global warming. DelBene is our choice for U.S. representative for the 1st Congressional District.
