Dr. Kim Schrier Statement on WA-08 Election Results

Schrier secures more votes than GOP challengers; will face extremist Matt Larkin this November

ISSAQUAH, WA – After securing more votes than any of her GOP challengers, Dr. Kim Schrier will face off against extremist Matt Larkin this November – who has already proved that he’s out of step with voters in Washington’s Eighth Congressional District. Larkin identified himself as the “only pro-life candidate” in the Republican primary, and cheered the end of Roe v. Wade. Dr. Kim Schrier is the only candidate in this race who will protect a woman’s right to choose.

In the last three years, Rep. Schrier has had 14 of her bills signed into law, eight by President Trump and six by President Biden, including lowering the cost of insulin and ending surprise medical billing. She has also secured more funding for local police and is standing up to price gouging by oil and gas companies. Dr. Schrier released the following statement on the outcome of the primary election:

“I have driven thousands of miles, hosted nearly 100 town halls, and have been delivering on the needs of this district. This community knows me, and knows that I am out there listening and advocating for them every day, ” said Rep. Schrier. “I have proven to be an independent and effective voice for the people of the Eighth District, and will always stand up for a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions. With the looming threat of a nationwide ban on abortion from Republicans in the other Washington, we can not leave the fate of this district, or this country, in the hands of my anti-choice opponent.”
