Republican U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said she will seek re-election to a fourth term from Washington’s 5th Congressional District.

McMorris Rodgers said this morning at the downtown Doubletree Hotel that major issues include the federal debt, which must be cut by spending less.

McMorris Rodgers is the vice-chair of the House Republican Conference, considered the party’s fourth-highest leadership position. She is the highest-ranking GOP woman.

Her campaign has raised more than $700,000 and planned to raise at least $2 million. She has no announced challengers.
