Press Releases


CAMAS, WA – Today, JT Wilcox, sitting Washington State Representative from District 2, former House Republican leader, and small business owner, endorsed Leslie Lewallen for WA-03. The announcement comes after seven days of endorsement announcements from the Lewallen camp.

“As a small business owner and current member of the Washington State House of Representatives, I have an acute understanding of what the people of Washington State need. Our communities need representation that shares their ideals of low costs of living, increased public safety measures, and parents’ rights in schools and Leslie encapsulates those ideals. I know that she will not bend to the shifting tides of D.C.’s political elitism and will bring commonsense to the Capitol,” said Wilcox. 

JT Wilcox has served in the Washington State House of Representatives since 2011, and he and his family own Wilcox farm which has served the community for four generations. He has dedicated his life to giving back to the people of Washington State and knows what it takes to be a strong Republican leader. 

I am so grateful for this endorsement from JT Wilcox,” said Lewallen. “He is a proven changemaker and leader in our state, and I am proud that he understands the vision we have for Southwest Washington. This campaign is for all Washingtonians because we know we must do whatever it takes to make our voices heard.”

This endorsement announcement is the eighth in another week of upcoming releases highlighting the diverse and growing support for Leslie Lewallen’s campaign. While Marie Gluesenkamp Perez actively votes against the interests of WA-03 constituents, Leslie Lewallen will fight to show voters that there is a better path forward.
