I’m proud to endorse Carolyn Long because I know she’ll show up and fight for working folks in Southwest Washington every day in Congress. Carolyn grew up in a family that struggled to make ends meet, even briefly dropping out of 7th grade to help run her father’s small produce stand, and worked a union job to put herself through college. Congress needs more people like Carolyn who understand that working families need champions protecting their access to affordable healthcare and building an economy that works for everyone. I know she’ll serve her community with integrity in D.C.
(Former Vice President)
With the Trump administration attacking our democratic institutions on a daily basis, we need people in Congress who will fight back. Carolyn Long is a constitutional law scholar who knows how important those institutions are, and will be the voice working-class families need in Congress. I have no doubt Carolyn will put the people of Southwest Washington first, and I'm proud to endorse her.
Carolyn Long has energized the 3rd District. After serving her community as an educator for the last twenty-three years, she's ready to take her dedication to Congress. From growing up working at her family's produce stand to teaching generations of students, she has lived the experience of so many 3rd District residents. I know that Carolyn will be a champion for all Southwest Washington families, students, workers, and seniors--working for access to affordable health care, quality education, good jobs with growing wages, and more. I am proud to endorse her campaign and look forward to working with her to keep fighting for the people of Southwest Washington.
With each passing day, Donald Trump and the House GOP bring us closer to a full-blown constitutional crisis. Our nation needs people in Congress to fight for the institutions that preserve our democracy and protect the security of the American people.
Carolyn Long is one of those people. She is a Constitutional Law expert who knows the importance of these institutions and how they can best serve all Americans. As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, I have witnessed the destructive policies of the Trump Administration firsthand. Carolyn is a voice we need in Congress. Her unique experience brings a skill set our country will benefit from enormously.
Carolyn will stand for the Constitution and a return to common sense governance. I am proud to stand with her.
(Current Representative for California's 33rd CD)
Carolyn Long earned my endorsement because of her commitment to supporting our veterans, strengthening our public schools, and creating family-wage jobs. Carolyn Long will work to level the playing field so everybody has the opportunities to succeed. She’s going to be a great member of Congress and I cannot wait to serve with her.
(Current Representative for Washington's 9th CD)
Carolyn's decades of service to her community as an educator and experience fostering civil, productive debate on big issues we face as a nation make her uniquely qualified to represent the people of Southwest Washington. I know Carolyn will work with both parties to get the federal resources Southwest Washington needs to rebuild its aging infrastructure and to bring more high-wage jobs to the district. I'm proud to endorse Carolyn Long for Washington's 3rd Congressional District, and I look forward to working with her to solve the problems facing the families of Southwest Washington.
(Washington State Governor)
Carolyn’s solutions-minded approach to governing and dedication to helping those who disagree find common ground will make her an effective representative in Congress. Carolyn's work in her community over the last twenty-two years and connection to hundreds of families through her teaching gives her unique insight into the challenges faced by 3rd District residents.
(Former Washington State Governor)
Her dedication to our constitutional system makes her an ideal candidate to serve as a check on this executive and protect the rights of Southwest Washingtonians. Carolyn Long is the right person to represent Washington's 3rd Congressional District in Congress.
(Washington State Attorney General)
Carolyn Long is just the kind of person we need to fight the special interests and bring common sense and real solutions to Congress. She will show up every day to work for ALL the people of Southwest Washington and she won't be afraid to challenge party power brokers or the administration. It's time for us to have a real representative in Congress - It's time for Carolyn Long for Congress!
(Former Representative for Washington's 3rd CD.)
Carolyn Long is the ideal choice to represent the Third Congressional District. We must capture this moment, not only to elect Carolyn Long, but to put Democrats as the Majority in the House of Representatives.
(Former Representative for Washington's 3rd CD.)
She’s says it isn’t about what we really want, but what can we really get. That’s what we need more of back in Washington, D.C. You’ve got to be practical and realistic, and try to get things done.
(Senator, WA 19th LD)
(House of Representative, WA 22nd LD)
(Vancouver City Council)
(Pacific County Sheriff)
(Clark County Treasurer)
(Position 4, Washougal City Council)
I was excited to hear that Carolyn is running for Congress, in part because she has a stellar reputation with her colleagues and students. More importantly, she has an in-depth knowledge of law and policy and the necessary connection with the people and needs of SW Washington to make a difference. She is a formidable candidate and I fully endorse her!
(WSUV Adjunct History Professor, Washougal School Board, Dr.)
(Vancouver City Council)
Carolyn brings to the congressional 3rd race a sense of vitality and ethical values. Both my wife Dawn and myself wish her well in this new political adventure.
Richard Lee Dreier
I am 100% behind Dr. Long. She is exactly who we need fighting for our values.
Such a breath of fresh air!
Mary Ann Sukovaty-Sun
Carolyn is exceptionally competent, capable, and courageous. She will provide the 3rd. district with a thoughtful and focused voice to work for the interests of all not just some.
Carolyn will be a much-needed Congresswoman for the 3rd District.
Carolyn supports getting big money out of elections, effective job training, building and repairing our infrastructure, affordable healthcare,and improved services and support for veterans. She is exactly the representative that SW Washington needs. I wholeheartedly support this brilliant empathetic candidate who will listen to her constituents and act on their best interest.
Dr. Long was my college professor at Washington State University in Vancouver. In one semester, I learned a ton about Public Dilberation and what it truly meant to be vested into the community! She led her students into communities and let us lead tough conversations with adults that were concerned about future problems. Dr. Long is aware of the many issues our nation is facing and is a breathe of fresh air, we can have an intelligent adult return to the room. Her opponents don’t question her knowledge, her degree, her experience or anything that’s problematic to them. They attempt to scare voters into believing she hasn’t lived here “long” and that there is no local loyalty. I say without a doubt that the fear tactics will not scare the public away. Dr. Long is the best fit Progressive Candidate for this position and no amount of molarchy should slow up the vote! We have a lot to fight for, we need a fighter on our side and not someone representing the 1%!
Vote Dr. Carolyn Long!
You give me HOPE for the future of our country.
I support Carolyn Long for Congress!
Smart, progressive woman! Just what we need.
I have heard Carolyn speak clearly and directly about the pragmatic approach she would take in representing all of us in Congress. To have such easy access to Carolyn and to be able to have an intelligent discussion on the pressing issues we face as a state and nation. Carolyn represents a massive and exciting improvement over Jamie's complete failure at the job. I am looking forward to Carolyn being my representative.
If the Democratic Party had run Carolyn Long in 2014, Jamie Herrera Beutler wouldn't be our Congresswoman today. A fresh breath of air in an atmosphere of policy votes by Beutler which hurt citizens up and down the District, year in and year out. I'm 100% certain Carolyn Long will be a successful candidate this August & November, and a terrific Congresswoman for years to come.
Carolyn is the right and only person for the job!
Time for JHB to go!!
I am very inspired by Carolyn's message and I believe she is the right choice for the 3CD seat.
Carolyn Long has spent her life developing the kind of critical analysis and problem solving skills needed to get our country on the right track. She is deeply invested in democracy and making government work for everyone.
It is so refreshing to finally support a person who is intelligent, and is concerned about people and the betterment of their lives, as apposed to the current climate of blind subservience to political party line.
Please see comments per partner Julie DeSmith for specifics endorsement already posted mid February.
Carolyn Long is the person I have been waiting for to represent me in Congress for a long time. She is intelligent, articulate, and understands what the people of SW Washington need in a representative. We have been without representation for far too long. Thank you Carolyn for stepping up.
I am so happy to have a candidate like Carolyn to support this year. With all the heavy issues facing our country, we need clarity, common sense, and a voice for the people!
Finally, a representative that truly listens and communicates the values of our diverse community!
Let's flip this seat!!!
What a refreshing contrast to Jamie Herrera. She has become a rubber stamp to Trumpism. Let's retake the House in November!!!
Carolyn Long possesses the expertise, effectiveness, and empathy to serve the people of Washington’s Third Congressional District with distinction and humility. She genuinely cares about the people and our current and future collective progress.
We attended an in-person town hall with Carolyn and were immediately impressed with her intellect, sense of humor, and her genuine interest in listening to the thoughts and concerns of the people in the room. She will be a strong and thoughtful representative for our district. We look forward to doing what we can to help get her elected!
Frank & Susan Hackett
After reading her book, "Religious Freedom and Indian Rights: The Case of Oregon v. Smith," I am convinced (a) that Carolyn knows her Constitutional law, and (b) that she will be an advocate for Democratic ideals.
Carolyn Long is intelligent, articulate, and passionate about Democratic values. She is the best chance we have to unseat Republican Herrera. Carolyn holds a degree in Political Science and has taught and worked at Washington State University in Vancouver for more than 20 years. She She has my strong support.
I saw Carolyn at the 1 year later event. She is the perfect storm. She knows the constitution, which is being assaulted daily by our current administration. I am 100% behind this candidate. I also own a small manufacturing business in Vancouver with 12 Employees.
Carolyn is smart, articulate, genuine, and the right person to represent my community in the 3rd district.
I am endorsing Carolyn Long because I believe she has all of the qualities necessary to be a highly effective congresswoman - including a deep understanding of constitutional law - as well as the intellect, the analytical skills, the work ethic, the empathy and compassion and, above all, the good character necessary to represent the people of the 3rd Congressional district in Washington.
What struck me about Carolyn was her energy and her clarity about what she stood for.
We must stop the circus now, Carolyn has the ability and understanding of how to do just that.
Jami has to go! Southwest Washington must do its part in removing majority power from the Trump protectionist Republicans in the House of Representatives. Carolyn Long will not be afraid to have open meetings with the public. Jami is afraid to face the public in open meetings.
Dear Ms. Long,
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am about your candidacy. I plan to attend your private event in Ridgefield at the Eid's on 2/21. I look forward to meeting you there. Thank you so much for your willingness to support our district! Gretchen Grey-Hatton
It is exciting to see a candidate generate the excitement Carolyn does. It's past time for JHB to go, and I look forward to working for Carolyn to make it happen!
Carolyn Long is brilliant, articulate and personable, JHB would be crazy to debate Carolyn because JHB would end up looking like a buffoon, of course she won't debate so we'll never have the pleasure. It will be wonderful to have one of the great political minds in the nation representing Washington's 3rd Congressional District.
Carolyn Long has the knowledge to formulate sound public policy, the values and empathy to work on behalf of the entire community, and the skill to ethically and skillfully work with others with different perspectives and political philosophies that will make her an exceptional Member of Congress.
Finally, a candidate that makes sense in many ways. I like that hundreds of young people know Carolyn from their classroom experience and as many parents have trusted their children to Carolyn's perspective of our representative democracy. Her commitment to being our face to face representative is very refreshing and to my mind fufills the intent of our government being - of, by and for the people.
Lee L. Jensen
I’ve known Carolyn almost eighteen years. I’ve seen the good work she’s done in SW Washington that entire time. I know this about Carolyn with absolute certainty. She’s a person of deep integrity. She’s a person who is compassionate. They are two of the most critical qualities for a representative in government in my mind. But there’s more. She’s smart. She’s hopeful. She’s got a sense of humor. And her tank is never empty. She will serve this district with honor, sincerity, and inclusiveness. We are beyond fortunate to have her as a candidate for our representative in Washington, DC.
Carolyn Long would be an excellent representative of the 3rd District. She has the intellect and skills to navigate the political process for the benefit of her constituents unlike the incumbent who supports failed and failing policies that can and will cause harm to the people in her district.
It is important to support education at all levels in order to improve the lives of people in District 3. Jamie is out of touch with the constituency.
We fully support Carolyn Long. She represents ALL OF US - not just the selfish & corrupt Politicians!
Barry & Leslie Dahl
Carolyn provides the first ray of hope since the 2016 election. I think she's a strong and worthy opponent against Herrera-Butler in 2018.
We are arguably the richest and most powerful nation in the world. We need someone to champion education and health care for us in Washington, D.C. Carolyn Long has the credentials, integrity and the heart to help us all here in SW Washington.
As a professor of criminology and sociology, I know Carolyn understands the complex issues of crime, substance abuse, and mental health in our community.
We need a Congress woman/man who listens to the people they represent- not the party lines drawn in concrete. Carolyn practices active listening! She truly gets it.
I can say with all confidence and conviction that Carolyn will work very hard to fairly and honestly represent her constituents. She can improve the effectiveness and results of our political system, when given the opportunity by the voters of the 3rd Congressional District.
We need Fair representation in Congress! "Country before Party"
Defeat Jaimie and get this train back on the tracks!
Carolyn Long has all the right qualities I'm looking for in my representative: smart, compassionate and hardworking. She's strong enough to be independent and put people and issues above politics.
I have known Carolyn Long since 2013, and have seen her dedication not only to her students but also to the cause of bringing civility back into political conversations through her work with the Initiative for Public Deliberation. She is active in mobilizing students and citizens to talk through difficult issues and come to a better understanding of each other’s point of view. Due to this work and seeing first-hand what she is capable of I find myself very excited about her running to represent the 3rd Congressional District. She will be a voice for us in Washington D.C. and will fight to uphold the values that we hold dear. Her honesty, integrity, dedication, and conviction makes her the ideal candidate and representative for the citizens of Washington 3rd. I proudly endorse Carolyn Long for Congress.
Let's put citizens over party!!
Bob and Jan Verrinder
Carolyn is the dynamic, hard-working and talented representative we need in SW Washington!
Carolyn has the ideas, experience and energy to help SW Washington move forward!
Carolyn is the best person to represent our community in the 3rd Congressional District. She is the backbone we need in DC to have adequate representation. She is uniquely qualified: With her professional credentials, experience, and "no-nonsense" personality, she is sure to produce the results that our community wants & needs.
