A Spokane business owner running for Congress says he plans to put partisan bickering aside and bring representatives together if elected.

Democrat Rich Cowan is running for Washington's 5th district against Cathy McMorris Rodgers.

He visited the Tri-Cities today to speak with residents about issues in the Mid-Columbia.

Cowan says his top priorities are creating jobs, standing by Medicare and supporting farmers who contribute to our region's agricultural industry.

"Congress right now has an approval rating of 10%. It's broken. It's not working. And we need people in there that can bring people together and get the job done" said Cowan.

Cathy McMorris Rodgers has served as the 5th district representative in Washington since 2005.

Cowan says he's been going door to door and visiting with people across the district to gain support.
