EMILY’s List endorsed pediatrician Kim Schrier (D) in the race to replace retiring Rep. Dave Reichert (R).

“As a pediatrician and a community leader, Kim Schrier has dedicated her career to improving people’s lives—and now she wants to continue that work in Congress. At a time when congressional Republicans continue to sabotage health care for millions of families, Kim’s perspective as a doctor and a patient with a pre-existing condition is needed in Washington now more than ever,” the group’s president Stephanie Schriock said in a statement.

Reichert’s exit opens up a competitive seat in the Seattle-Tacoma suburbs that backed Hillary Clinton by 3 points. The top GOP candidate is former gubernatorial nominee Dino Rossi, who posted eye-popping fundraising hauls last quarter.
