He'll work to control spending, balance the budget, tackle the debt and fight for government accountability.We need leaders who stand on principles.

Doug Cloud earned a proven record of integrity and excellence in service from his career helping thousands of our neighbors solve real-world problems, root out fraud and expose scams. He's won justice for his clients before Washington State's Supreme Court and the Federal 9th Circuit Appellate Court.
With some of Washington's highest unemployment in our district, we've all been hurt by the economic crisis. A life-long 6th district resident, Doug Cloud learned the value of hard work during his youth working on a farm, in a factory and in the lumber industry.

Doug Cloud will fight to end the back-room deal-making, run-away spending and job-killing regulations, leading the charge for Constitutional economic solutions.
Send Doug Cloud to Congress to bring sustainable jobs back to Washington; enforce existing immigration laws; advocate sensible economic solutions, not bailouts; protect seniors and veterans by repealing government-run healthcare threatening Medicare and TRICARE; and reunite Washington families by seeking an honorable end to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
