Camas Republican Leslie Lewallen issues statement pointing out the contradiction between the Congresswoman’s campaign and her performance since being elected
CAMAS – Last week, Roll Call released an article outlining the uphill battle Marie Gluesenkamp Perez faces getting re-elected in Southwest Washington’s Third Congressional District. Not only is she engaged in the toughest challenge of all reported toss-up races, but she represents a district made up of 53.7 percent Republican voters.
The campaign staff of Republican candidate Leslie Lewallen released a statement Thursday stating that Perez has repeatedly bragged about her plans to turn the Blue Dogs caucus into a rural Antifa group and bring their belief systems into Southwest Washington. After a number of votes that have not aligned with the values of Southwest Washington and even admitting that she votes with her party “8 out of 10 times,” the Lewallen campaign stated that it is clear that Marie Gluesenkamp Perez is not the “moderate” she claimed to be on the campaign trail.
“Marie Gluesenkamp Perez campaigned as a moderate and then voted directly against the needs of Washingtonians. She’s misrepresenting who she is and what her goals are in Washington which is to bring ANTIFA into the moderate wing of the Democrat party,” said Leslie Lewallen, candidate for WA-03, in a recent statement. “We need a leader who is pro-small business, pro-parent voice in schools and pro-safety in our communities. I am proud to say that my record at the Camas City Council reflects those ideals.”
Lewallen is a sitting Camas City councilor and former prosecuting attorney. She joins the race for WA-03 against previous runner up, Republican Joe Kent. Lewallen has been a continuous champion of education in Southwest Washington and has worked to cut down on unnecessary expenditures on the local level to provide relief to Washingtonians.
Lewallen has experience balancing the city of Camas’s budget, cutting government bureaucracy and fighting for parent’s voices in schools. “She understands the needs of Washington voters and will continue to advocate for smaller government,’’ read Thursday’s statement.
