In Washington's 3rd Congressional District, we are facing many distinct challenges. At this point, our current representative has not held an in-person town hall in 8 months. We need an accessible representative who understands the importance of availability, and the willingness to listen and work for her constituents.

Dorothy Gasque is a 3rd generation public servant. She was an Army non-commissioned officer in Iraq. In 2015, she began working tirelessly to encourage the citizens of Clark County to join the political revolution. In March 2016, she gave an inspiring introduction of Sen. Bernie Sanders in Vancouver, a week before the Washington State Caucuses. Thanks to countless volunteers including Dorothy, Bernie Sanders won the state by a landslide. She went through the delegate process in Washington and ended up representing Clark County as a national Bernie delegate at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. 

Dorothy has vowed to refuse any and all contributions from corporate interests and superPACs. This campaign is a true grassroots campaign, powered by the message and the people.

As of this point, Dorothy has 2 other Democratic opponents and the Republican incumbent who is not representing her district in Congress. We need someone with the desire, intelligence and drive to give the people a voice.

Our main campaign goal at this point is to have enough money to open a campaign office and pay our vital staff a living wage. Please join #ourfutureourfight. Please support Dorothy for Congress.

    “Dorothy Gasque is the progressive this district needs. In order to enact real change in the United States, we need congress members like her who will strive to take money and corruption out of politics, as well as work together with the people regardless of party in a reliable way. We need someone like Dorothy Gasque who will actually fight for the people, make it clear by constantly staying in contact with her constituents, and keep them in her mind as she shapes her platform. Universal healthcare, the fight to end wars, investments in education, and infrustructure are a few of the many things Dorothy will fight for to help the working class rather than the rich.”

    “I support Dorothy Gasque for Congress in WA state because she is the only true progressive running and she shares my values in the entire Justice Democrats platform.”

    “Dorothy Gasque has our backs. Most politicians go to DC to enrich and empower themselves. Dorothy will go to enrich and empower the people. We are not getting what we deserve in return for the tax dollars we pay. It's time to give the people what we truly deserve: increased political power, increased social freedom, increased financial security, increased quality of life. The people deserve Dorothy Gasque.”

    “We need progressive voices like Dorothy- who is for the people. A war veteran who is a team player- and a fighter for justice”

    “Dorothy Gasque understands the urgency of getting money out of politics, and she walks that walk by running a People-powered campaign. That one issue means when the defense contractors and insurance companies and oil companies come knocking, she won't have to worry about losing her next election when she cuts corporate pork deals, gets us out of reckless wars, enacts Medicare for All, and empowers the country to lead the world when we run out of oil. Encumbered politicians are limited to half-measures that work for no one, like the ACA, but unencumbered public servants are free to do their job. No other candidate is as dedicated to removing those conflicts of interest.”

  • endorsed

    “She is a true candidate of the people her interest and agenda is to represent her constituents, not special interests. A supporter of Bernie Sanders can do no wrong in my opinion.”

  • endorsed

    “I endorse Dorothy Gasque because she is a person of true courage and integrity. She can stay calm under pressure and she inspires hope. We need Dorothy to be our next congresswoman!”
