Ben is a champion for veterans, workers, and working families, and he's committed to universal healthcare, campaign finance reform, and smart infrastructure investments. Unlike Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Ben believes that big money in politics has to go. He also believes that we have no business supporting dozens of overseas military installations and pouring billions into defense spending when we can't even adequately care for our veterans here at home.

Since Foley lost in 1994, no Democrat with elected experience has run for this seat. Until now. Ben Stuckart is the President of the Spokane City Council, where he has led Washington's second-largest city through a slew of progressive reforms, from Paid Sick Leave to an Apprenticeship Program to a slate of environmental protections, like banning neo-nicotinoids and PCBs.
