Cantwell met with commuters to encourage people to vote.
"It's going to be a really close election," she said Friday afternoon about all of the races and ballot measures.
In addition to encouraging people to vote, Cantwell showed her support for fellow Democrat and 48th District, Position 2 candidate Cyrus Habib, who was also at the meet-and-greet stop.
Cantwell's stop in Redmond is part of a 26-city tour, which began Oct. 24 in Yakima. After meeting with people from both sides of the Cascade Mountains, she said the economy was the topic most people were concerned about — regardless of where they were from.
"You'd be surprised how similar (both sides of the state) are," Cantwell said.
She said her favorite thing about the tour has been seeing how various programs have worked out for people such as a Doppler radar system helping the local fishing industry or a young woman working to earn her doctorate in a science field. Cantwell said seeing things work out this way is "very rewarding."Contact Redmond Reporter Reporter Samantha Pak at email@example.com or 425-867-0353, ext. 5052.
