WASHINGTON– Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and her husband, Brian Rodgers, today issued the following special announcement about their family:

“Being a wife and mother have been the most wonderful and blessed experiences in my life.  For some time, Brian and I have hoped we would be able to have another child, so it is with great joy we announce that we are expecting our third in December.

“I look forward to continuing my duties as Conference Chair and running again for re-election next year to represent the great people of Eastern Washington.  Both Cole and Grace were born while I was a member of Congress, so we will continue to balance the challenges of parenting young children and working – just like countless moms and dads all across America.

“Your continued support and prayers are greatly appreciated.”

The Rodgers’, who make their home in Spokane, Washington, have two children, Cole (6) and Grace (2).  McMorris Rodgers is the first Member of Congress to give birth twice while in office.
