Fortunately, Republican Jaime Herrera offers Washington families the change they need. As an independent-minded leader, Herrera will provide commonsense solutions, rather than partisan ideologies. From 2005 to 2007, Herrera served as a Senior Legislative Aide for Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, acting as the Congresswoman's lead advisor on healthcare policy, education, veterans' and women's issues. In 2007, Herrera was appointed to a vacancy as State Representative in Washington State's 18th Legislative District. After serving in the 2008 legislative session, she was successfully elected with 60 percent of the vote in 2008.

Democrat Denny Heck supports the same job-killing policies the out-of-touch Democrat majority has been forcing upon Americans. The former five-term State Representative and majority leader from liberal Olympia supports the Democrat agenda which has led our nation to sky-high unemployment and a ballooning national debt. For instance, Heck has backed the Democrat's healthcare takeover which places punishing burdens and new taxes on small businesses and middle-class families. As evidence of Hererra’s impressive primary win and a recent poll showing her leading Heck by a 54 to 41 percent margin, it’s clear that Washington voters are tired of the same failed policies that have worsened our economy.

Luckily in November, middle-class families have an opportunity to elect Jaime Herrera and begin moving towards a better and more fiscally sound Washington. For more information about Hererra’s campaign, visit her website or check out her Facebook and Twitter pages.
