The only female doctor in Congress and a fighter for Washington families
Congresswoman Kim Schrier M.D. (WA-08) is a pediatrician with deep roots in Washington’s 8th district, a geographically diverse seat that represents the Seattle suburbs and a large stretch of rural and agricultural area. She is the only female doctor in Congress and provides a vital missing voice as Congress debates women’s healthcare, reproductive rights, and children’s health.
A strong voice on reform
Rep. Schrier does not accept corporate PAC donations, and is an original co-sponsor of H.R. 1. She used her no corporate PAC commitment in TV ads, and talked about the outsized influence of Big Oil, Big Pharma, and the NRA on the campaign trail.
A critical re-election campaign
The 2018 race was one of the most expensive House races in the country, and the NRCC already named Schrier a top target for 2020. She is the first Democrat to represent this district since its creation in 1983. ECU is proud to support her re-election campaign and will make her race a priority in the upcoming cycle.
