In Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler’s letter to ODOT Director Kris Strickler, she highlighted the fact that implementing a tolling program, as well as “congestion pricing’’ on I-5 and I-205 would punish Southwest Washington residents.

Kent is one of three Republicans who are challenging incumbent Republican Jaime Herrera Beutler. Kent, Battle Ground resident Heidi St. John and Vancouver resident Wadi Yakhour each announced their candidacies soon after Herrera Beutler was one of 10 House Republicans to vote to impeach Trump in January after the president was accused of inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol Complex.

“Joe Kent is a retired Green Beret and Gold Star husband running against RINO and incompetent Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler in the 3rd District in the State of Washington. Joe served his country proudly for many years and understands the tremendous cost of America’s wars in the Middle East, and elsewhere. In Congress, Joe will be a warrior for the America First agenda, unlike Jaime Herrera Beutler who voted, despite the facts, against the Republican Party and for the Democrats’ Impeachment Scam,” Trump said in a statement.

“Joe Kent is strong on Crime and the Border, loves our Military and our Vets, and will protect our Second Amendment, which is under siege. I met Joe at Dover Air Force Base on the evening that his wife was being brought back from the Middle East, where she had been killed in combat. It was a very sad moment in Joe’s life, but I was incredibly impressed with him and told him that he should someday run for office — we need his voice and leadership in Washington D.C. Now he is running, and Joe Kent has my Complete and Total Endorsement!’’

Kent responded to Trump’s announcement on Twitter.

“Thank you very much President Trump! I’m honored & ready to take our country back!’’ Kent tweeted.

She only has “integrity” because it’s a purple district. Republican rubber stamp otherwise.

Amanda, are You also a Democrat? JHB has a horrible Voting Record, apparently you do not know or care about what she has been voting for!!! President Trump would never have left Americans behind in Afghanistan and $85 Billion in top of the line American military equipment and Helicopters and etc. Amanda, apparently as Dimond and Silk have stated about “Jim Crow Joe Biden” and apparently he is Your President, not ours!!!

Yes! Vancouver is growing, and Jaime is barely holding on to her seat. We will flip blue eventually. Thanks Trump for helping speed it up by running a republican demoralizing campaign against Jaime.

Dom, are You a Democrat? JHB, has a Terrible Voting Record and should have never been elected, she supports Open Borders, and has constantly voted to fully Fund the Baby Murdering Factory Planned Parenthood and to Impeach our Great President Trump that put America 1st and accomplished so much that Made our Beloved America Great Again, like Building the Wall to keep Terrorists, Drug Cartels, MS-13 and other Criminals from crossing our Southern Border into our Country that are killing our American Citizens!!! I could go on and on because the Accomplishment our President Trump made are Incrediable, however I do not have the time to list them all, and apparently You do not care anyway!!!
