  • Dr. Kim Schrier is seeking re-election to her seat in the U.S. House representing Washington’s 8th Congressional District. Before serving two terms in Congress, she worked as a pediatrician and ran a local practice in Issaquah serving Washington families.

    Elected in 2018 as the first Democrat to hold the seat, Schrier has consistently brought her community values and professional health expertise to Congress. Unlike her Republican opponents, Schrier would support a federal law protecting reproductive freedom for all Americans. This term, Schrier supported the bipartisan infrastructure bill that will provide essential funding to improve local roads and bridges, as well as $19 million dollars for pedestrian safety projects in the 8th District alone. She also voted for Build Back Better, which would provide funding for early education, extend the child tax credit, reduce the cost of child care, and combat climate change. If re-elected, Schrier wants to prioritize the everyday needs of working families as well as a compelling view of public health including issues like affordable prescriptions, gun violence prevention, clean air, and fresh groceries.

    Schrier has been a standout member of Congress working across party lines to get things done for her district. She has earned your vote for re-election.

This race has attracted a slate of Republicans who are all running to the right to win the support of the MAGA Republican base in the primary.

Republican King County Council member and Reagan Dunn is challenging Schrier for the seat his mother once held. Over the last 17 years, Dunn has been a consistent obstacle to progress on the council. This May, Dunn cast the sole “no” vote on a resolution expressing the council's opposition to overturning Roe v. Wade and support for abortion rights. During the height of the pandemic, Dunn voted against hazard pay for essential workers and opposed protections for renters who were on the verge of losing their homes.

MAGA Republican Jesse Jensen running to challenge Rep. Schrier for a second time. He is an Army veteran and works at a national real estate software corporation. Jensen’s divisive campaign priorities include tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy, dehumanizing border policies, and inaccurate school curriculums that erase some of us from the history books. Jensen wants to cut community investments that help keep working families afloat and improve the quality of life for us all.

Also in this race is Pierce County prosecutor Matt Larkin. Like Jenson, Larkin is running on a MAGA Republican platform to erase Washington’s diverse communities from our students’ history books, increase the militarization and reach of police forces in our neighborhoods, and scapegoat those struggling the most in our communities instead of supporting policies so we can all meet our basic needs and have the chance to succeed.

At this critical moment for reproductive freedom, our economy, and our country, these extreme Republicans would drag our district backward instead of bringing us together to find common solutions.

  • Democrat Steve Hobbs is running to retain his position as Secretary of State for the remainder of the two-year term. He is a first-generation Japanese American and 30-year member of the military, serving tours in Kosovo and Iraq before becoming a Lieutenant Colonel in the Washington Army National guard.

    Hobbs was appointed Secretary of State in November of last year after Kim Wyman resigned to join the Biden Administration. Prior to his appointment, he served four terms in the Washington state Senate representing the 44th Legislative District. His voting record was consistently progressive on social issues and more conservative on taxes, environmental issues, and workers' rights.


    During his first 8 months in office, Hobbs has been laser-focused on protecting our electoral systems from attacks. He has used his background in national security to partner closely with the Department of Homeland Security to stop digital threats to our voting systems, both foreign and domestic. Hobbs also understands the challenge misinformation poses to the integrity of our elections. He has been working to set up a division within his office specifically to combat misinformation and wants to work closely with social media companies to ensure they take down dangerous conspiracy theories.

    As the pandemic recedes, Hobbs is committed to restarting his office's voter outreach program. He is very enthusiastic about a trusted messenger program he's launching to utilize community leaders to talk about the importance of voting. He also wants to improve outreach to reduce the racial disparities in rejected ballots because of signature mismatches.

    The only issue of concern with Hobbs is his personal opposition to ranked choice voting. During our interview, he shared that he's concerned about implementing a complicated new voting system at a moment of low trust in our elections. He is particularly concerned that voters like his mother, who speaks English as a second language, will have a difficult time learning and participating in the new system.

    Hobbs made a compelling case that the Secretary of State must adapt to the new and complex challenges of running modern elections. Hobbs is a good choice if you're looking for someone with national security experience to safeguard and rebuild trust in our electoral system.

  • Pierce County Auditor Julie Anderson is running as a non-partisan candidate to bring an independent voice to the Secretary of State's office. Anderson served on the Tacoma City Council before running for county auditor in 2009 and winning re-election three times. As Pierce County Auditor, which is a nonpartisan position, she has administered dozens of elections while also overseeing licensing and public record-keeping.

    Anderson is running as a non-partisan because she believes political parties shouldn't be involved in running elections they are simultaneously trying to win. Her campaign priorities include supporting more local races becoming non-partisan, increasing access to voting and election information, and improving election security. She wants to translate the voters' pamphlet into 10 languages, going beyond what is mandated by the Voting Rights Act. She also wants to conduct risk-limiting audits in all 39 Washington counties and "pre-bunk" rumors to increase confidence in our state's election systems.

    While Hobbs spoke more about using cybersecurity to protect our elections, Anderson leaned on her professional expertise to describe ways to expand our democracy. She believes that the state should redouble its efforts to reach voters with disabilities. By using a secure, expert-vetted electronic ballot similar to those used for overseas military voters, Anderson sees a path forward to reach those who don't always have access to the vote.

     

    During our interview, Anderson expressed support for ranked choice voting because she believes it will allow candidates to break through our two-party political system. She supports grants for local jurisdictions that are interested in trying ranked choice voting so that it's not unduly expensive for local governments and auditors can learn more about how to manage and implement it.

    Anderson offers voters an experienced option if they are looking for an independent to administer our state's election.

  • Gig Harbor City Council member Robyn Denson is running for Pierce County Council in District 7. She is campaigning to fill Derek Young’s seat when he leaves the council this year because of term limits. Denson has been an active and effective council member in Gig Harbor.

Denson has four Republican opponents in this race, including several who are very divisive.

 

Republican John Harris, a construction company owner, is in this race to oppose common-sense police accountability measures, calling those who want police reform fixated on “racial problems that don’t exist.” Harris gained notoriety by posting a $300,000 bond for the three Tacoma police officers charged with killing Manuel Ellis. In May, he fired several rounds from his handgun while searching for what he described as a stolen vehicle at a homeless encampment. Harris's reckless and irresponsible behavior is not what we need on the Pierce County Council.

 

Republican Chuck West is a director on the Peninsula School District board and a former fire department battalion chief. West was the subject of controversy after he made several racist Facebook posts that were called out by students and staff in the district. He also echoed MAGA Republican talking points by calling the January 6th insurrection a "handful of people" and promoted debunked conspiracy theories about the pandemic.

 

First-time candidate Mitch Anderson works in finance and is running to redirect funding from essential community services and use it to send militarized police forces into our neighborhoods. Air Force veteran and human resources manager Paula Lonergan has typically conservative campaign priorities. She would rather blame the county’s issues on our neighbors who are struggling the most and cut social support services than make investments in our communities so we can all thrive.
