Higher Heights for America PAC was proud to endorse Kristine Reeves to represent Washington’s 10th Congressional District.
Kristine is a proven progressive champion who knows how to deliver results. Kristine was first elected to the Washington State House of Representatives in 2016 representing District 30-Position 2. In a hard-fought general election, she defeated the incumbent by just 1%. She won re-election in 2018 with 64% of the vote.
Kristine grew up the daughter of a single mother who struggled with substance abuse and relied heavily on social services. In and out of foster care and even homeless at points in her childhood, her public school teachers and counselors were her safety net. Reeves’ journey to elected state representative, a director of economic development in the Commerce Department, and happily married mother of two children is a testament to the value of public education and the critical investment of public-school educators in transforming her life and helping her break the cycle of poverty.
Kristine received her bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Washington State University and a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University in Spokane.
If elected, Kristine will champion legislation that expands access to low-income housing and rental assistance programs. She will aggressively pursue reducing health care and medicine costs and protect public education. She will fight to end the gender pay gap, work for fair and equitable sentencing laws, restore funding for Planned Parenthood and strengthen protections for organized labor.
The time is now to elect more Black women to be at decision-making tables to represent us. Washington State the two candidates who receive the highest percentage of votes advance to the general election, which means that two candidates from the same party could each be on the ballot in November. Higher Heights for America PAC strongly encourages its members to support Reeves’ campaign with their time, talent and resources.
