Federal

U.S. Senator

  • Since Patty Murray was first elected in 1992, the "Mom in Tennis Shoes" has been an incredible champion for women, working people, veterans, and an economy that works for everyone. The fourth-ranking Democrat in the Senate, she has earned the respect of Democrats and Republicans alike by forging agreements on the budget, education, women's health, and other critical issues, all while continuing to fight for working people across our state.

    Her opponent is former Washington State Republican Party Chair Chris Vance. Vance, a partisan operative who championed George W. Bush for president, has led a lackluster campaign and does not bring new ideas to the table. Murray's leadership, experience, and progressive values make her the clear choice in this race.

Congress

1st Congressional District

5th Congressional District

  • Joe Pakootas is a community and business leader credited with turning around the Colville Tribe’s business enterprises during his time as CEO. He is passionate about addressing income inequality, protecting the environment, and protecting women’s access to health care. He is challenging conservative Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who is a top member of the Republican leadership in the House. She helped lead the House Republicans' extremely conservative agenda, including blocking emergency benefits for the unemployed, cutting $40 billion from food stamps, and opposing laws to end pay discrimination against women.

    Also running in the race is Independent Dave Wilson, who promises not to take PAC money, Libertarian Krystol McGee, and Republican Tom Home, who are not running effective campaigns. Pakootas would be a refreshing change of leadership for the 5th Congressional District.

Governor

  • Governor Jay Inslee has been a strong, principled leader on the important challenges facing Washington, including tackling transportation problems, increasing the minimum wage, and fighting global warming. He has also worked to fund schools by closing unjust tax loopholes and fought to close the gender pay gap. Before he was elected Governor in 2012, Inslee represented both sides of the Cascades in Congress, opposed the Iraq war, and worked to increase accountability and oversight for Wall Street banks.

    In contrast, Republican Bill Bryant opposes the Washington Voting Rights Act, is opposed to many public transportation projects, and is an obstacle to closing unjust tax loopholes. Also in this race are Democrats James Deal, Johnathon Dodds, and Patrick O'Rourke; Republicans Goodspaceguy and Bill Hirt; Mary Martin of the Socialist Workers Party; Independent Steve Rubenstein; David Blomstrom of the Fifth Republic Party; and Christian Pierre Joubert of the Holistic Party, none of whom are running competitive campaigns. While Inslee has his work cut out for him in his second term, we believe his strong moral compass and vision for improving our state make him the best choice in this race.

Secretary of State

  • Tina Podlodowski is running for Secretary of State to increase voter participation and turnout as the state’s chief elections officer. She is a former Microsoft executive who also served on the Seattle City Council and has strong track record of non-profit leadership.

    Podlodowski is challenging incumbent Republican Kim Wyman for failing to improve declining voter participation. Wyman has opposed the Washington Voting Rights Act and has refused to support common-sense measures to increase voter participation such as Election Day voter registration and pre-registration for 16- and 17-year-olds. Timothy Turner, a Libertarian who is not a credible candidate, is also in this race. Podlodowski deserves your vote.

State Auditor

  • Jeff Sprung is a lawyer and former Planned Parenthood Votes board member who is running to increase transparency and accountability in state government. He previously worked as an Assistant U.S. Attorney investigating and prosecuting corruption in low-income housing programs. He supports increasing whistleblower protections to better identify fraud and potential inefficiencies in government. Sprung is running the strongest campaign and has received the most support from our progressive partners.

    Former Pierce County Auditor and current Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy is another good candidate in this race. She is running to use her experience managing large budgets and agencies to improve efficiency and transparency.

    Their opponent is the socially-conservative Republican Senator Mark Miloscia, who earned dual endorsements along with Sprung from our labor partners at SEIU 925, SEIU 775, and the Washington Federation of State Employees. Miloscia also earned a sole endorsement from the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters. Unfortunately, Miloscia supports allowing employers to deny coverage for birth control and co-sponsored a bill that could ban many forms of birth control. We're concerned that if elected, Miloscia could use his office to launch politically-fueled investigations of Planned Parenthood and other women's health groups.

    Also in this race is Independent Mark Wilson and No Party Preference candidate David Golden. Sprung is the best choice in this race.

Insurance Commissioner

  • As the state Insurance Commissioner, Mike Kreidler has brought a range of experience to the position and defended the interests of Washington residents against big insurance companies. Kreidler cut insurance rates, required that contraceptives be included in prescription drug coverage for women, and helped increase the transparency of the health insurance market. If re-elected, Kreidler will work on expanding health care access, limiting insurance company exploitation, and eliminating credit scoring as a determinant of insurance rates. Kreidler faces Libertarian Justin Murta and Republican Richard Schrock, neither of whom is running a credible campaign.

3rd Legislative District

5th Legislative District

  • Sen. Mark Mullet is a moderate small business owner and former Issaquah City Councilman running for re-election. He currently owns the Zeeks Pizza and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream store in Issaquah. Mullet's private sector experience has helped him work across party lines to get results on transportation, budget issues, and health care transparency.

    He faces Republican Rep. Chad Magendanz, who is the only East King County legislator of either party to vote against the transportation budget that will improve I-405, reduce traffic gridlock, and upgrade our transit options. Mullet's strong legislative track record and support for improving transportation make him the best choice in this race.

    Jason Ritchie

  • Jason Ritchie is a rising star who is running an energetic campaign to defeat the incumbent Republican Rep. Jay Rodne. Ritchie started a business remodeling homes for people with disabilities after his father had a stroke and suffered from limited mobility.

    The incumbent Rodne was widely criticized this year for making offensive anti-Islamic statements that shook Snoqualmie's many hardworking Muslim families. Rodne has become an embarrassment to the people he is supposed to represent. Ritchie's strong commitment to fully funding education, ensuring healthcare access for all, and stronger protections for the environment would make him a welcome change for this district.

  • Representative Sam Hunt is a reliable progressive who is now running to replace Karen Fraser in the state Senate. He is a strong advocate of open and fair elections and has sponsored to encourage online voter registration. Hunt has also supported increased education funding and women's health protections.

    Another progressive candidate in this race is Erik Lee, a labor supporter and University of Washington budget analyst who was inspired by Bernie Sanders to run for office. Lee and Hunt received a dual endorsement from our partners at SEIU 925. In addition, Spencer Baldwin and Steve Owens are on the ballot but not running competitive campaigns. Due to his strong support from our partners, Hunt is the best choice in this race.

24th Legislative District

  • Rep. Kevin Van De Wege is running for the open seat vacated by Sen. Jim Hargrove. Van de Wege is a former firefighter who has developed a moderate Democratic track record in Olympia. He has been a strong ally on environmental issues, including his co-sponsorship of a bill to require oil companies to disclose the amount of oil entering our state, the route of oil trains, and basic information for first responders.

    Van De Wege is being challenged by Danille Turissini of the "Independent GOP" party, an untested candidate who has never run for office. Of even greater concern is that Turissini is the former Field Director of the Family Policy Institute of Washington, which was a leading opponent of marriage equality and abortion access for women. Van De Wege is clearly the best choice for state Senate.

27th Legislative District

  • Sen. Jeannie Darneille has been a strong advocate for the 27th legislative district in her 12 years in the House and four years in the Senate, particularly for families who are struggling to make ends meet. She is a champion of women, people with disabilities, health care access, and expanded economic opportunities for all.

    Darneille faces conservative Gregory Taylor, who does not have the same community support, and Democrat Martin Cline, who is not running a competitive campaign. Due to her longtime dedication to the district, Darneille deserves your vote.

28th Legislative District

  • Rep. Christine Kilduff is a former University Place School Board member who serves as Vice-Chair of the House Judiciary Committee. She is a strong and effective advocate for improving economic opportunities in the district, strengthening our schools, and improving access to health care. She has also been a great advocate for veterans and military families during her time in the Legislature. This past session, she sponsored legislation to increase community outreach programs to veterans in rural and remote areas, ensuring they can access health care, education, and employment services.

    Kilduff is opposed by the very conservative candidate Paul Wagemann, who has run for this seat unsuccessfully every year since 2010, Libertarian Brandon Lyons, and Michael Winkler, another conservative candidate. Wagemann supports outlawing abortion even in cases of rape and incest and has questioned whether or not schools need more funding. Kilduff's other Republican opponent, Winkler, supported the discriminatory I-1515 that would have overturned our state's human rights protections for transgender people. Due to her service to the community and support for public schools, Kilduff deserves your vote.

Additionally, Sen. Ranker sponsored bills to protect the Puget Sound and its marine life.

    He is opposed by Republican Dan Miller, who is not running a competitive campaign. Due to Ranker's passion and commitment to making Washington a better place, he deserves your vote.

  • Lisa Wellman started out as a public school teacher before building a very successful career in marketing and technology, including serving as a vice president at Apple. Wellman is running to ensure our schools are fully funded, reduce traffic gridlock, and protect women's health.

    Wellman is challenging incumbent Republican Sen. Steve Litzow. Litzow voted with his Republican Party leadership 97 percent of the time during the 2016 legislative session. His commitment to voting in lockstep with the extremely conservative members of his caucus the vast majority of the time has made him an obstacle to progress on many education, environmental, labor, and women's health issues. Also in this race is Libertarian Bryon Simonson, who is not running a competitive campaign. Due to her leadership in education and commitment to fully funding our schools, Wellman deserves your vote.

    Wylie faces a primary challenge from Kaitlyn Beck, a progressive who is referenced as a "Bernie-crat" on her website. While Beck is not raising any money in this race and does not share the same broad support from our partners as Wylie, we are excited to see a talented, out transgender person running on a platform of accessible transit, affordable housing, and protecting the environment, and hope she runs again in the future. Wylie deserve your vote.
