McMorris Announces New Addition to the Family

Dec 28, 2008


(Washington, D.C.)  Congresswoman Cathy McMorris and husband Brian Rodgers announced today that they are expecting a baby boy in May. This is the first child for the couple who married last August.

“This past year has been filled with many blessings for Brian and I, and we are thrilled to be starting our family,” said McMorris. “While it will be challenging at times, I am excited for the months and years ahead. With the love and support of my husband, family and friends I will learn how to best balance both work and family.

“My focus and commitment continues to be serving Eastern Washington. I will still be able to return home for the February and April breaks, and plan to travel throughout the district, making myself available to the people. I continue to serve on key committees in Congress that are crucial to our region and will manage the schedule to minimize the number of votes that I miss. I look forward to August recess when I will truly be able to take our baby home, and introduce him to Eastern Washington.”
