All Politics is Local

Let the endorsements begin

The 2018 primary election is a mere 55 days away. As such we can expect the list of endorsements from local groups to steadily trickle in. Among the first to publish a formal list of candidates they support are the Young Democrats of Clark County. None of their endorsements should come as a surprise as most races boast a single Democratic candidate. The 3rd Congressional race, however, offers three Democrats up to run against incumbent Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground.

The YDCC chose to back Carolyn Long.

Here’s the rest of their endorsements:

14th Legislative District, Position 1: Sasha Bentley
17th Legislative District, Position 1: Tanisha Harris
17th Legislative District, Position 2: Damion Jiles
18th Legislative District, Position 1: Chris Thobaben
20th Legislative District, Position 1: John Thompson
20th Legislative District, Position 2: Brennan Bailey
49th Legislative District, Position 1: Sharon Wylie
49th Legislative District, Position 2: Monica Stonier

Clark County Prosecuting Attorney: Tony Golik
Clark County Clerk: Barbara Melton
Clark County Council Chair: Eric K. Holt
Clark County Council, District 1: Temple Lentz
