Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers touts tax reform, Inland Northwest economic growth in speech at Greater Spokane Inc.
In a speech to business interests and nonprofit representatives Wednesday, the congresswoman was joined by members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to tout the tax reform bill as a major driver of the Inland Northwest’s economy.
The event will compete with Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ annual town hall, which is scheduled to begin a little bit later Thursday evening in downtown Spokane. Brown’s event will not require tickets and doors will open at 5 p.m.
Tickets for the event at the Spokane Convention Center have sold out, but the congresswoman’s office said room may still be available.
Free tickets for the first televised candidate forum featuring the candidates vying to represent Eastern Washington in Congress will be given away on Monday.

Analysis: Late ballots swing to Cathy McMorris Rodgers throughout district, Spokane County in race against Lisa Brown
A lead of 600 votes on election night has blossomed to nearly 7,000 district-wide for the congresswoman, who has once again proved the adage correct that Republicans vote later than Democrats in Washington state. Is it due to historical trends, or the negative ads that aired during the primary season?
The ad charges that Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers hasn’t stood up to the Trump administration on the divisive “zero tolerance” policy that has led to children being separated from their families. The congresswoman has condemned the policy publicly and supported legislative efforts to end separations that have so far proven unsucessful in Congress.
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers lengthened her lead over Democrat Lisa Brown Friday as the ballot count continued in Washington’s 5th Congressional District primary.
