“Crime is getting out of control,” Swank said. The main reason why, the main reason, it all has to do with drugs,” Swank said.

Swank also said he would work to reduce inflation and gas prices.

“We need to get back to energy independence here because that’s what’s driving all of our inflation,” Swank said. “That and the government spending and printing money.”

Strickland, who in 2020 becomes the first African-American representative from Washington state, said the federal government should not be blamed for rising gas prices or higher grocery prices.

She says she takes pride in her work to try and reduce costs for Americans.

“People who are addicted to drugs or alcohol, let’s treat them, make sure we can find the root cause of it,” Strickland said. drugs come to our country, but that alone is not why people are addicted. “
