The Chinook Observer sat down with both candidates for Washington state’s 3rd Congressional District this month.

Jaime Herrera Beutler, a Republican, has held her role since January 2011. She is up for re-election against Democrat challenger Carolyn Long, a political science professor at Washington State University’s Clark County campus.

The 3rd District includes Lewis, Pacific, Wahkiakum, Cowlitz, Clark, Skamania and Klickitat counties, and part of Thurston County.

Washington’s vote-by-mail balloting starts Oct. 19. Ballots must be placed in drop boxes or postmarked by 8 p.m. on Nov. 6 to be counted in the midterm election, which is expected to determine whether Republicans remain in the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Q&As with both candidates are attached.
