Walla Walla Union Bulletin latest in long series to recommend a vote for Cantwell
SEATTLE – The Walla Walla Union Bulletin has joined an overwhelming majority of the state’s newspapers in endorsing the reelection of US Senator Maria Cantwell. In their endorsement, the UB praised Cantwell’s keen knowledge of issues important to Eastern Washington and strong record of bipartisan cooperation, especially when it comes to jobs.
Earlier this week, Cantwell earned endorsements from the Vancouver Columbian for her “strong record of helping Southwest Washington,” the Kitsap Sun for her tireless advocacy for Washington state jobs and her leadership on the Boeing tanker deal, and the Olympian, who opined:
“For her relentless work protecting consumers from future financial meltdowns, promoting clean energy and a sharp focus on the link between jobs and education, Sen. Maria Cantwell has earned another term in the U.S. Senate.”
These endorsements come in addition to earlier support from the Tacoma News Tribune and the Everett Herald.
“Senator Cantwell is humbled to earn these endorsements for her tireless advocacy to create Washington jobs – from apples to aerospace – along with her vision to grow jobs in every single area of our great state,” said Cantwell campaign spokesman Kelly Steele. “Maria’s willingness to put her head down and get things done, even in the face of great dysfunction in Washington, DC – whether that means working across the aisle or standing up to Tea Party extremism – has served Washington state well.”
As one of the most beautiful states in the union–and one of the richest in natural resources–Washington has a special interest in energy and environmental policy. And Maria has fought hard to uphold the state’s conservation tradition, while also working to bring our energy policy into the 21st century.
Maria knows Washington’s business community – because, as an executive at an innovative software company, she was part of it. And as a Senator, she’s led the way in helping businesses large and small throughout Washington grow, thrive, and create jobs.
Maria has taken a leadership role on safety and security issues, including defending our borders, strengthening our military, cracking down on gangs, and taking on drug crime in Washington communities.
Middle-class families around Washington and across the country are facing tough times–and tough decisions about balancing the family checkbook each month. Maria has fought to strengthen the economic security of Washington families and cut taxes for middle-class families.
