Steve Beren is the 2008 Republican candidate for Congress in Washington State's Seventh CD against far left Democrat incumbent Jim McDermott. The Steve Beren campaign is focused on an energy policy that increases supply and reduces prices; economic growth through lower taxes and reducing the size of government; tough border security and ending illegal immigration; support for our troops and victory in the war against terrorism; and a positive moral vision for America's future.
Steve Beren supports our troops and our mission in the U.S.-led war against terrorism. Beren was a Vietnam antiwar activist in the 1960s and 1970s, but since then he has become a patriot, and a Republican. He is a speaker, writer, and activist on the issues of international terrorism, the Iran nuclear threat, and the relationship between politics and morality. He has a special insight into the motivations of the current antiwar movement, and the fallacies of their arguments.
A native of New York City, Beren moved to Seattle in July 1987. A former Democrat, Beren came to realize that the Democrats were weak on national security, and considers himself a "9/11 Republican" and a “five star conservative.” He switched to the Republican Party at age 52, just like Ronald Reagan. Beren and his wife live in Seattle, and they are members of Christian Faith Center. Beren, now 57 years old, is the director of operations for the Seattle office of an internet marketing company.
After the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01, Beren felt he had a responsibility to do what he could (as a private citizen activist) to help win the war against terrorism. In particular, he has sought to bring his message to young people, challenging the leftist political domination of our nation's campuses.
“The spirited [Steve] Beren is challenging Seattle's congressman-for-life and its one-party reputation. The Emerald City used to elect Republicans: A two-party system is badly needed.” - columnist Joel Connelly in the 6/12/06 Seattle Post-Intelligencer
