Spokesman-Review: Michael Baumgartner joins crowded race to represent Eastern Washington in Congress

By Emry Dinman

Spokane County Treasurer Michael Baumgartner has formally joined the race for Washington’s 5th congressional district, announcing his candidacy at a campaign launch event at the University District Gateway Bridge overlooking the Washington State University Spokane Medical School.

“I’m running for Congress because I believe, and what I feel, is that the American dream is dying,” Baumgartner said. “I’m just not going to let that happen. Together, we’re not going to let that happen.”
