CAMAS, WA – In case you missed it, Leslie Lewallen discussed what sets her apart in the race for WA-03 and what inspired her to get involved in local politics. Leslie has never been one to sit on the sidelines. Her track record proves that she knows how to win and how to advocate for the needs of her community.

Marie Gluesenkamp Perez doesn’t share the concerns of Washingtonians and is only in office to push through progressive policies. Just last week, Portland issued a state of emergency to address the opioid crisis, and Clark County has seen a 500% increase in overdoses from 2018-2022, yet Perez claimed that “nobody stays awake at night” worried about the border.

As a mother of four, I constantly am talking to my children about drugs and about drugs being laced with fentanyl. I’m lying awake at night, so I don’t know why she isn’t,” said Lewallen in the interview.

When elected, Leslie will make securing the border and stopping the flow of fentanyl a top priority. This is in sharp contrast to Perez, who voted against the Secure the Border Act only months after being elected to Congress.

Leslie continues to build a strong campaign for Congress. She was ranked one of the top ten contenders for Congress in the 2024 election, and was endorsed by Winning for WomenTiffany Smiley, and a number of local leaders who understand that Leslie will bring the change the state needs.
