“Carolyn Long is challenging Jaime Herrera-Beutler again in Washington’s 3rd District”
“The Democratic effort to flip Washington’s 3rd Congressional District blue officially took flight today with the news that Democratic challenger Carolyn Long has decided to seek a rematch with Republican incumbent Jaime Herrera-Beutler.
“Long, a professor of political science and constitutional law at WSU Vancouver, turned heads around the country last cycle when she built a fiercely spirited, credible campaign against Herrera-Beutler in the span of just a few months.
“In the  general election, Long secured 47.33% of the vote, keeping Herrera-Beutler in the low fifties for the first time since 2010, and outperforming even the vaunted Denny Heck, who unsuccessfully sought to keep the 3rd in Democratic hands in 2010 after Brian Baird decided to retire.
“(Heck ran again for the United States House in 2012 in the newly-drawn 10th Congressional District, and has represented it ever since.),” by The Cascadia Advocate.
