Leslie Lewallen Files to Run for WA-03

CAMAS, WA – The Lewallen for Congress campaign today announced that Leslie has officially filed to run for Washington’s third congressional district seat. 

“As a mother, I watched my children, family and friends suffer the damaging effects of COVID policies; and after the results of the 2022 general election, where we lost a very winnable seat because we had the wrong candidate in the race, I knew I had to act. I ran for the Camas City Council and won; and now I see the need to stand up again because the status quo is failing us. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez masquerades as a moderate when in reality she’s anti-parent, anti-small business, anti-police and pro Anitfa. Joe Kent had his best shot in 2022 and he lost, despite having the endorsement of President Trump, the WA GOP and support from the GOP establishment. The voters of WA-03 deserve a Representative with a proven track record of success, who will stand up to the extremist Democratic policies in DC and work to secure our border, lower costs, and defend parental rights. I am the only Republican in this race who can win back this seat; and I invite the voters of Southwest Washington will join me  – there is too much at stake in this election to repeat the mistakes of 2022!”

Leslie is a 5th generation Washingtonian, mom to four, and current Camas City Councilor. As an attorney, Leslie has worked as a prosecutor as well as a property rights and environmental lawyer.
