314 Action Congratulates Dr. Kim Schrier on Victory in WA-08
(Washington, D.C.) -- Today, 314 Action, the largest organization created specifically for scientists and STEM professionals running for office, congratulated Dr. Kim Schrier on her hard fought victory to represent Washington’s 8th Congressional District.
314 Action supported Schrier early in her campaign, providing a crucial $50,000 digital ad program late in the Democratic primary, providing her with a boost in a talented field of Democratic candidates. During the general election campaign the organization reached out to nearly 80,000 eighth district voters in an aggressive $181,000 direct mail program contrasting Schrier and her opponent Dino Rossi. The organization also provided extensive social and earned media support.
President and Co-Founder of 314 Action, Shaughnessy Naughton, released the following statement:
“Kim Schrier’s had a long and successful career solving problems for her patients, and now she’ll bring that evidence-based problem solving ability somewhere it is sorely needed, the House of Representatives. There are no female physicians in Congress, and it’s about time that changed. Our country’s healthcare crisis will only be solved with new perspectives, and I’m confident Dr. Schrier will deliver.”
314 Action is the largest and only resource specifically created for scientists and STEM professionals seeking assistance running for office. Formed in July 2016, 314 Action has over 400,000 active members and donors across the United States. For more information, visit314action.org
