Ms. Brown is willing to meet with her constituents, unlike her opponent. We need a fresh voice in DC, not another Republican afraid of #45.--Terry Bloor

I do not feel that Mr. Newhouse represents our values nor has he been available for town halls or other types of constituent interaction.--Ian Leavy

We agree with her on issues that are very important to security, medicare, climate change issues, women’s issues, building a strong and repected USA once again.--Gerry and Carmen Tollefson

I have thoroughly read your Website and believe you really do provide a voice for the diverse needs of our region.--Mary James

Christine is on the correct side on the issues of health care, climate change, and immigration and she will provide a check on the current President.--Larry Dillon

If our democracy is to be saved, if we are to hold truth to power and stand for the rule of law, we simply must have a blue wave oin November. Our lives as Americans depends on a win for Ms Brown and all others whom have bravely accepted the challenge to be my voice in Washington DC. Thank you.--Jeanie Crane

Christine shares the concerns of 4th District patrons often overlooked or ignored by Mr. Newhouse. The needs of those living in the district are much more diverse than those catered to by Mr. Newhouse. He has supported Trump at every turn to the detriment of those seeking legal asylum in this country, the economy and our national security. Essentially, he is a shill for the current administration and needs to be retired at the ballot box.--Richard Weller

The economy of Eastern Washington needs immigration reform. Christine in congress will provide an opportunity for reform to occur. Current office holder is all hops, no workers.--Jim Toomey

I am the CEO of 2 national consulting firms, HealthCare Initiatives and HealthCare Management Consultants, with 44 years of experience in developing and improving healthcare delivery systems, evaluating healthcare payment systems, and analyzing public policy. The only reason candidates support the status quo is because they realize some benefits --- campaign contributions and/or other perks --- from elements of the healthcare industry. Christine Brown's support of a single payer system is the most enlightened, cost-effective, and fair option policy for all Americans. Obamacare is imperfect, but has been better than the alternative i.e., nothing for the uninsured. I encourage all 4th Congressional District voters to probe Dan Newhouse's health care proposed policy, ... that is , if you can crack his website which appears to block anyone not providing and Email address. Whenever Dan spews the party line that America should have a voucher system and pose the threat that taxes will spike with a single payer system, the status quo protected by the fear of change is being dropped on you. Republicans and Democrats bleed the same color blood. The nation is begging to stop the unnecessary bleeding, reduce pain and suffering, and eliminate unnecessary deaths for lack of healthcare coverage. Only the absence of political will has stopped us from enjoying healthcare security for all Americans. We must compel legislators to serve us, not the layers of status quo political beneficiaries.--Terry Brauer

We must put Congress back into the hands of accountable leaders.--Stacey Auger

From the very beginning Christine has shown real character in her support for LGBTQ equality, compassion for the plight of immigrants, and her understanding of the science behind climate disruption. In the Tri-Cities, especially, those who challenge science when most of our economy relies on it, is ridiculously hypocritical. It's time for a person capable of critical thinking to represent the 4th District.--Ginger Wireman

Being raised on a farm/ranch in the Columbia Basin, I am tired of farmers being used by the government like chess pieces with no regard to the families that make up these farmers. I want some representing me who won’t be afraid to come out of their offices to answer the people’s questions. I want someone who represents the people who voted for them, not the party.--Veda Guynes

I see Christine Brown standing with teachers, inviting them to have a seat at the Table. She is concerned about people’s opinions and is out talking to them. I want to see a leader who is concerned about healthcare, renewable energy and the lessons of science. She makes me feel like I have a seat at the Table.--Jan Nilsson, retired Art teacher

Washington is a state with amazing renewable energy resources. We need leadership that realizes electric vehicles, wind and solar are the way to a clean future that protects the environment. Common sense is what is needed, not the "bought and paid-for" partisanship of Congressman Newhouse. I am an independent voter and someone who believes Washington state can lead our nation out of the climate change and pollution quagmire. Go Christine Brown!--Lawrence Jewell

Christine Brown has articulated a clear platform on issues that are important to all of us. As a journalist, Christine knows the difference between fact and fiction. She knows that a free press is an essential part of our nation – not an enemy of the people. Christine will support the issues that are important to the people in District 4 – she listens!. I believe Christine would be a Congressional Representative who is a strong voice in our nation’s capital--Launa Morasch

Christine would first try to take care of all Americans from different walks of life, rich or poor unlike the current representative. She would vote to provide healthcare for all the people not just the ones that have careers that provide it. Unlike Dan Newhouse, she understands it is a basic necessity. She understands science and the impact climate change has and will impact our environment as we maybe on the verge of no return. She understands we need a new policy on immigration and that we need to take care the DACA kids as the executive branch pursues division among the people. She understands that Social Security was paid for and not a right and that as Democrats we owe it to our people as the Republicans try to dry up the funds to pay for it. She understands that all economic levels must pay their fair share of taxes and it starts with the leader of the free world. Lastly, Christine has civility and manners something truly missing in Washington DC. She would do a super job of teaching that in Washington!--John Patrick

I support Christine Brown because she stands for ideals that I believe are urgently in need of attention. Namely, the welfare of our country’s democratic system of government, healthcare as a right for all as opposed to a privilege for only those who can afford it, an honorable immigration reform that safeguards the humanity of those seeking entry into this country, protection of our environment and an understanding of climate change as a critical issue, and the reproductive rights of women as a recognized basic right of all couples and individuals.--Angela Rush

Fantastic history of service to our community. Great work ethic. Strong knowledge of the issues. And an honest person. She is willing to travel to voters and meet and greet and listen.--Anne Doyle

Christine is the best candidate to represent WA-4. As a journalist, she has met people directly for years, followed their stories, and she understands challenges facing the people and the communities in the district. As a result, she has unique ability to make fact-based assessments and to speak truth.

I spoke with Christine, and she did not repeat soundbites--she asked questions about me and my experience to inform her positions. I have confidence that all of Christine's constituents--Democrat or Republican--will have a similar positive experience. This was a unique experience for me, after years of writing Dan Newhouse and receiving only pre-packaged talking points. There is a difference.

Christine expresses concern about smart policy to protect the farming industry, small businesses, and exports--objectives we can all support, Democrat or Republican.

I am from Richland, and I have lived outside the America for 20 years, working in education and foreign policy. I believe that fair relationships with other countries makes America stronger and more secure, and that smart engagement can grow the economy and creates U.S. jobs. We can do that while keeping an eye on smart immigration reform, smart environmental policy, and smart protections for U.S. labor. America needs to be a reliable partner in the world. We can do better.

Now more than ever, WA-4 needs a Representative in Congress who understands community need, who asks meaningful questions, who makes fact-based decisions, and who takes a stand on important issues that effect all of us, irrespective of party affiliation. That person is Christine Brown. I'm proud to endorse and support her.--Lee Calkins

We need to change the path of where we are going at the Federal level. Believe she has the background and knowledge to do the job.--Jan Pearson

As a working registered and licensed Occupational Therapist working in Yakima County, I have seen it all. Our health care system is broken and disheartening. A single-payor Medicare for All system would alleviate the confusion, the increased premiums and deductibles, the denials, over utilization of services and the inner battle we all face with our health care needs. I have written and contacted Dan Newhouse on this very serious issue. No solutions..

I’m endorsing Christine Brown because I believe she has a good sense of what we need for Health Care in Washington State.--Lisa Lansford Smith OTR/L

I like affordable health care for all, I like social security and enjoy receiving those benefits I have paid for over the years, I like having a US Representative that is available and I like Christine Brown!--James SissonChristine Brown made a profound impression on my parents when she was at the Grand Coulee Dam. She actually encouraged my non-political parents to register to vote for the first time in their lives. In my opinion, this could only happen if she was absolutely genuine in her stance on relevant issues.--Tamra Leigh

Christine understands the importance of health care for all, something every other first world nation provides. She will support good jobs and educational opportunities for a strong economy.--Rhonda Hilyer

As an RN I support Ms Brown's stance on Healthcare.--Magdalene Sumner

Because we need more women and more democrats in Congress... stop the insanity!--William (Bill) Hermanns

Because our district deserves a candidate who will represent all people in it.--Chris Hamilton

Christine Brown was my first news director when I entered into the news biz. She was always very aware of what was going on with all of us young reporters, professionally as well as personally, but she let us make our own mistakes so we could learn and grow from them. She nurtured us as if she were our parent, but then, was the consummate professional, always pushing us to get out of our comfort zones and to be the best we could be. I always knew Christine would be in politics, because she was so serious and savvy when reporting on them. Plus, she just has that air about her, very smart, quick, resourceful, and hardworking to get the job done...and done well! I am proud to know Christine Brown and I still practice today what I learned while working as part of her team at KNDU-TV. She would be an excellent representatiive for Washington State and I fully endorse her! Thank you!-- Colette Keogh

You indicate that Congress is working for the interest of the wealthy and you would like to work for the everyday American. Newhouse has proven that he is working only for a few. Time for him to go.--Susan Polizzi

It's time for a change..Christine's politics more closely represents the issues important to me.--Becky Thomas

Our democracy is in grave danger from Russian attack. We need strong leadership like Christine Brown that recognizes this threat and will fight to protect us. Dan Newhouse supports the do-nothing position of the GOP and doesn't understand our great peril.--Kent Richert

Christine puts the people of the 4th CD first! Christine represents priorities that put people and the way we earn our living and provide for our families -- rather than the policies of Wall Street and the investment bankers. The 4th CD needs trade agreements that expand international markets for our farmers rather than tariffs that destroy and close markets to Washington agriculture.--Senator Maralyn Chase

She's honest.--Antonio Cardenas

In my insurance business the most important issue is the income level of my customers. The more income they have; the more business I have. And they have medical care in order to remain healthy and continue to be my customers. Medical care for all and living wages are issues Christine understands and considers to be prime. More importantly she has the where-with-all to be effective dealing with these issues. This is one those years we voters need make a statement. The best way to make a statement is to vote Democratic.--Donald Hinman

I am a lifelong (68 years) resident of the Tri-Cites. I have seen many changes in our region and perpetually experienced the lack of leadership's ability to address how these changes affect all of us in the region. For the first time in generations, I am inspired by the inclusive message carried forward by Christine Brown. I truly feel like my voice will matter with Christine Brown in Congress.--Scott Woodward

We need Christine because she will work to provide programs for all citizens, not just the wealthy. She understands the need for medical insurance coverage for all citizens and for all medical conditions. She understands the need in our area for farm workers who will be treated fairly. She understands the need to provide a reasonable way for immigrants to become citizens of the United States. Her experience as a newscaster provided her with a wealth of knowledge about our society, our country and our democracy.--Robert Boy

Christine is knowledgable about my region, as well the State of Washington and will represent all people, not just Republicans. We need new blood NOW and her experience as a newscaster will be a positive addition to the US House of Representatives and the State of Washington. She has my vote and every woman in my family's vote in this district, including my 98 year old mother. Welcome aboard Christine. There is Blue in Eastern Washington! #VOTEBLUE2018--Carol Childs

I like her platform and agree with her about basic policy changes needed and policies that need to be protected.-- Carol Collins

Progress that Yakima needs. I was born in Yakima and graduated from Eisenhower High School in 1971. We need representation in congress, not a partisan placeholder.-- Jim DeBlasio

I was pleased to hear your presentation at East Wenatchee last evening. (4 April) I certainly agree with your positions on health care, immigration, and climate change and although I do not reside in the 4thCD I support and appreciate your candidacy. Thanks and best of luck.-- David Jaecks

As a disabled American citizen who exist solely on $750 social Security supplementary income along with $129 in food stamp monthly I must support Democrats whenever and wherever possible. Also the current representative in the house in Washington’s fourth district Mr. Dan Newhouse has done absolutely nothing to stand up to the con man currently in the whitehouse. Trump is a trader to this nation as well as a Russian dupe. Mr. Newhouse saw fit to vote for tax breaks for the wealthiest people in this nation. The fourth district needs a representative willing to stand up to the Republican Party and comrade Donald J Trump.— Joseph Allen

I've known Christine Brown for many years and I was thrilled when she told me she was planning to run for the 4th District seat. She will bring intelligence and passion to that position. We have had many discussions about all the concerns for our state and the people in our community. She will absolutely do right by us as our representative. I'm so proud to know her and will support her in any way I can. I hope you will join me.— Angie Tyree

Climate change is my primary motivating issue. She listens to us.— Jaydin HW Ledford

During her tenure at the local news station, she ran and anchored with integrity and honor. She would represent the hard-working class Americans and Washingtonians who believe in respect, ethics and dignity. She would bring this to Capitol Hill.— Mark Moberg

I had the amazing opportunity to work with Christine Brown three times during my career in television news. She gave me my first start in the business and taught me so much about how to learn about my community and to tell the stories that really matter. Christine is such a supporter of America's democratic process and making sure voters are informed when they go to the polls. I have great memories of standing beside her at many voter registration events around the Tri-Cities. I also remember how she would make sure all voices were represented on the newscasts that she anchored for so many years on KNDU-TV. I was so thrilled when I learned that Christine was running for Congress, because I know she has her community's best interests at heart and will be a voice for them. She knows a good idea when she hears one and it doesn't matter which party comes up with it! My only regret is that I don't live in her district, because she would definitely have my vote! Please support my good friend, Christine Brown!— Brian van Kleef

You have my full support!— Sharon Yerian

Christine will bring true representation back.— Laurel Tiphareth

After listening to Christine speak twice, I know she’s the right one to represent the 4th district. Her platform and values represent not only what I want out of a Congressional candidate, she represents the feelings of many people in the 4th district. 2018 will be the first election I get to vote in. I’m very proud to say I will vote for Christine Brown.— Jed Young

Like Christine, I was a media professional, her on tv, me on the radio. When you serve a community for a long period of time, when they welcome you into their homes, jobs, even their cars, it accomplishes a few important creates a bond in crisis, especially when you are the one breaking the news to folks, and it gives us an opportunity to really get to know an entire region in ways most people don't really have a chance to. If you do that kind of a job, and do it with integrity, passion and competence, you become a community spokesperson and leader almost by default. Most of us are too cowardly to step out from the studio and put that on the line by running for public office, but thank God Christine is willing to step up and do just that. People should give her their support for the same reasons they respected her enough to invite her news show into their homes every day for decades---her warmth, her competence, her intelligence, sense of humor, her demeanor (a professional who respected others, and demanded respect in return), affable, relatable and an all-around nice human being. This is an example of what were the best hopes of our founding fathers--people of competence and accomplishment bringing their skills to our National Government out of sheer altruism, motivated to improving the lives of fellow citizens. I urge you to join me in working to elect Christine Brown to the U.S. House of Representatives, WA 4th Congressional District in 2018.— Ralph Crowl

I only know Christine Brown from watching her during newscasts when she was on KNDU. However, I have taken time to read her stand on the issues--issues that concern me also--and I am happy that I now have a candidate I can support whose values match ones so important to me. Christine Brown has my vote.— Nancy Burleigh

Christine Brown is very aware of the needs of our district and our country. She was raised in Yakima and has lived in the Tri-Cities for many years. She came into our homes each night as our newsperson reporting important events of the day. She was also selected to manage that newsroom which allowed her to stay in tune with her viewing audience. She has also served as an energetic volunteer for many years, helping the various communities she touched. This, to me, ensures we will have a caring, thoughtful, and honest representative for our district. Thank you Christine for runninng. You have our vote.— Jon Juette

Ms Brown has been a public figure in the area for years. She is thoughtful and educated about the district,,, and is a heck of a nice lady.— Frank Blair

Christine Brown is the kind of thoughtful, independent representation that the people of the 4th Congressional District need and want.— Kendall Miller

Christine understands how to best help the working poor and the middle class.— Ruth Dight

I am very pleased to be able to endorse Christine Brown for Congress. I have know her for many years and I admire and respect her. It is time for us to support a new direction for our government and Christine Brown is a step in the right direction. Please join me in supporting her in this endeavor.— Ed Allen

Christine brings to the Tri-Cities a centered approach to government in a way that initiates the harmony and balance we need in our communities. She has been seen and respected throughout the region for decades, staying intimately involved in our daily lives by carrying vital news and information to us all. Her strong leadership and intellectual abilities are reputable. Unbiased, inclusive and dedicated are the adjectives that describe best her attributes and actions, making her the best choice to lead us into the future.— Toby Bouchey

I am so excited that Christine is running for Congress. I have been alarmed that our current representative is following the administration's chaotic decisions. Thanks for giving us an alternative.— Becky Minister

I have known Christine Brown for approximately 15 years and have had an opportunity to observe her in a number of different settings. She consistently asks questions to ferret out all available information on any issue under consideration. She listens to all sides of an issue and ultimately makes her decisions based on facts and the best interests of the community. Christine possesses the intellect and empathy we need to have representing us in Congress.— Jean Ryckman

As someone from the new generation of politics, who isn't very well represented in this area, it is refreshing to see someone finally fighting to represent truth. That's why I would be extremely satisfied to cast my first vote in our great democratic process for Christine Brown.— Antonio Madrigal

I believe we need someone with Christine's belief in the people of the 4th District who will fight for our interests by working with Democrats and Republicans and Independents to achieve success. Christine has a reputation and a passion. I sincerely believe she is the right person to truly represent us in Washington, DC.— Thomas Moak

I endorse Christine for Congress to represent ALL citizens in Eastern Washington fairly and equitably.— Rosendo Esparza

Thank you Christine Brown for your courage and desire to serve our country by representing the needs of the people. Thank you for espousing the values of caring for our community and tackling important issues that affect our lives like health care being a human right, financial consumer protections and how we are a nation of immigrants and all immigrants bring value to our country. For far too many decades, our government has ignored immigration laws and how they are out of date and do not support our current economy. YOU HAVE MY VOTE! Thank you, a concerned citizen.— jamie Perez-Carter

Christine Brown is an expert listener who will represent the needs of her constituents, not the will of big donors. She will bring thoughtful leadership to Washington's 4th District.— Martin McBriarty

I overheard a conversation between Christine Brown and another woman and was ecstatic when I heard she was running for office. I had to interrupt them and pledge my support. She sees the current administration saying "this is good for every American" and knows it will give a temporary reprieve but in the long term just gives Republicans an excuse to take away current programs that benefit the lower and middle class. It's time for a change and Christine (speaking from her heart) is what we need in WA state and in the U.S.— Lauren Perrault

Thank you, thank you Christine Brown! You give me hope for the future of our country. I'm with you on the issues and I will do everything I'm able to to help get you to the other Washington to put "checks and balance" back into the twisted and mean spirited reality show that has overtaken our democracy. Of the 535 members of the legislative branch of the federal government, only 104 are women! Women constitute 51% of the population! It's time to level the field of influence and make the US a true "Representative Democracy". YOU GO GIRL!— Judith Shaw

Christine Brown would not be a "Rubber Stamp" for this irresponsible, not fit to occupy the White House President we have. And Christine Brown would not have voted to repeal our health care for millions of Americans without replacing it with something that would be improved for everyone. Our current Representative is a good man but he continues to vote for laws that do not protect the interests of all hard working men and women. I want a representative in Congress that thinks what is best for all of us and does not just do what he is told. Christine Brown is who I am voting for. Christine Brown is who I am contributing to for her campaign. Christine Brown will be an excellent new choice for us in Washington D.C.— Clark Denslow

I thank Christine Brown for running for this position! I have read through her website, in particular her positions on the issues. I support her beliefs. We need her leadership! I'm excited to endorse Christine Brown to hold Washington's 4th Congressional District seat!— Gary Tubbs

I support Christine. She is knowledgeable, articulate and knows our community. She will put people before politics.— Shelly Reed

I am delighted that Christine Brown is running for the Washington Fourth District Congressional seat. She will put the needs of the fourth district first, above the party. She is for health care for all, a path to citizenship for law-abiding immigrants, and responsible regulations to protect consumers. She has knowledge of local, state, national and international issues, experience in separating fact from fiction and will work with all sides to solve problems. We can be proud of her values and dedication to helping others. She has my full support.— Mike Lawrence

It’s my privilege to endorse Christine Brown in the election to represent Washington’s Fourth Congressional District (WA-4). Our district needs new leadership. Someone who understands our history, but looks to the future. Someone who has the vision to see beyond party politics, and beyond the next party-line vote. Someone who truly represents the people of this vast, sprawling region we call the Mid-Columbia. I served in the United States Air Force for twenty years, and at a national research and development laboratory for another twenty-five years. I’ve worked with outstanding leaders and visionaries. When I say Christine Brown is a leader and a visionary, I’m speaking from experience. Please join me in supporting Christine Brown for the 4th CD. Richard Badalamente, PhD, Lt Col, USAF(Ret)— Richard Badalamente

You have my vote. Thank you for running. Eastern Washington needs someone of your caliber to represent us.— Luisa McEachern
