Carolyn Long is challenging Jaime Herrera Beutler in District 3. Both candidates are smart, decent and personable. But on my two big issues — health care and climate change — they could not be more different. Carolyn backs the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) plus public option, which my wife and I depend on. Jaime keeps voting to repeal or undermine it. Carolyn supports strong legislation to fight climate change, such as The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. Jaime’s website does not even mention climate change. Where do you stand?
