Rich Cowan is the Democratic candidate in the 5th Congressional District race. He is running against Cathy McMorris Rodgers.
It would be hard to find a stronger candidate. Rich was CEO of the acclaimed film company North by Northwest Productions for 22 years. This company employs 40 people in Spokane and Boise and has brought millions of dollars to the area.
He resigned as CEO to give his full time to running for office.
He has undergraduate and graduate degrees from WSU. He has been involved in community organizations and he is even an Eagle Scout and private pilot.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers, on the other hand, is most well known for standing behind Speaker Boehner in photos and videos and for voting a straight party line. She doesn't stand up for you unless you are very wealthy or a corporation. She has voted against equal pay for women, against veterans and against Medicare.
Rich Cowan is a solid and highly successful businessman who will work to bring jobs to the area, but will not sacrifice the core interests of the average citizen in doing so. Rich will represent the people of our district rather than the power brokers in Washington, D.C.
Let's send someone to Congress who truly cares about the citizens of Eastern Washington.
