Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s sister, Mona Das, recently announced that she would be challenging incumbent Republican Sen. Doug Ericksen of Washington’s 42nd Legislative District. If she wins, the two sisters would be the first siblings to serve in Congress at the same time. Jayapal has been a strong advocate for progressive causes and she has been a consistent critic of the Trump administration. She was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2016. Das, a former Obama White House Fellow , could bring a new voice to Congress, advocating for progressive issues in Washington state and across the country.
