Jaime Herrera Beutler’s goal is clear: “I will do everything I can to get the folks of Southwest Washington back to work.”
Economic mobility and job creation have always been front and center for this lifelong Evergreen state resident, who grew up participating in 4-H and swimming in the Lewis River. A passion for politics led Jaime to college, and then Washington, D.C. as a legislative aide for fellow Washingtonian Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers. Jaime’s desire to give back led her home, where she was appointed state representative by a bipartisan commission. (Notably, she was later reelected to that seat with over 60 percent of the vote.)
Today in the U.S. House of Representatives, Jaime proudly serves alongside her former boss and mentor, providing a fresh and independent voice for Washington residents and their families. She is the first Hispanic in history to represent her home state, and when elected to Congress at age 31, one of the youngest. And, as the ninth lawmaker in history to give birth while in Congress, Jaime knows what it means to be a working mom.
Jaime is running for reelection in Washington’s 3rd Congressional District.
