• Sen. Patty Murray has been a consistent and strong progressive voice in the U.S. Senate. She's seeking re-election to continue fighting for our basic rights and a higher quality of life in Washington and beyond.

    Murray was first elected in 1992 and has been a champion for veterans, working families, women, and economic opportunities for all. Before her tenure in the Senate, Murray worked as a preschool teacher, on the Shoreline School Board, and in the Washington state Senate.

    During her time in Congress, Sen. Murray has worked hard to keep our communities safe from gun violence, pass abortion rights at the federal level so that everyone has reproductive freedom, and expand access to affordable childcare. This year, she voted in support of the Women’s Health Protection Act, the Freedom to Vote Act, and a slate of other progressive bills that invest in working communities so that our country is a place where everyone can thrive. Murray has earned an impressive and diverse coalition of endorsements from local and national organizations, elected leaders, and unions.

    Sen. Patty Murray is a national leader on many of the most important issues facing our country. She has earned your vote for re-election.

  • 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 pediatric practice in Issaquah caring for kids and families across the region.

    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 be a compelling changemaker on public health 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.

Other Candidates

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

Republican King County Councilmember 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.

Republican Jesse Jensen is 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 the community investments that help keep working families afloat and improve the quality of life for us all.

Also in this race is former Pierce County Deputy Prosecutor Matt Larkin. Like Jensen, 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 into our neighborhoods, and scapegoat those struggling the most in our communities instead of supporting policies that help us 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 as 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 eight 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 many things re-open from the pandemic, 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 nonpartisan 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 nonpartisan candidate 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 nonpartisan, 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, for example, 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 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 so that 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 elections.

Legislative Races

Depending on where you live, you may have one of the below legislative races on your ballot.

  • Democrat

    Bill Ramos

    Evergreen Future
    Evergreen Future
  • Rep. Bill Ramos is running for re-election in Legislative District 5, Position 1 to continue bringing people-first leadership to the district. He first joined the Legislature in 2019 after previously serving on the Issaquah City Council and working as a transportation consultant.

    Ramos is running to continue working to make our communities safer by strengthening police accountability measures, investing in public infrastructure, and protecting our local ecosystems. He is also prioritizing economic security and living affordability for the district by expanding housing options and addressing our state’s upside-down tax code.

    Ramos has already made progress on these issues in Olympia. He sponsored a bill to provide law enforcement compliance audits this past session. In addition, he voted for the historic Move Ahead Washington package that will invest in increased transit access alongside much-needed upgrades to our transportation infrastructure.

    Ramos faces a challenge this year from Kenneth Moninski. He has spent his career in the aviation industry, running communications and media businesses. In 2020, he ran unsuccessfully for this same position on a shallow and typically conservative platform with an endorsement from the NRA. In this election, Moninski's platform focuses on opposing efforts to strengthen police accountability in our state while cutting the funding needed to deliver quality schools, affordable health care, and good-paying jobs that ensure all of our families can thrive.​

    Bill Ramos is the clear choice for House Position 1 in Legislative District 5.

    Lisa Callan

    Evergreen Future
    Evergreen Future
  • Democrat Lisa Callan is running for re-election to Position 2 representing Legislative District 5 where she has served for the past three years. Before that, she was an elected member of the Issaquah School Board and worked in the private sector as both an engineer and project manager.

    Callan has worked hard for positive change in Washington including improving economic security for working families and investing in our youth and public education. This year, she was named an Advocate for Affordable Housing by Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County for her work to expand housing options for all. Callan introduced two bills to protect students’ mental health and legislation to promote safety from surgical smoke for both health care workers and patients. In this race, she has earned strong community endorsements due to her consistent leadership and progressive values.

    Republican Chad Magendanz is running once again for the Legislature, this time challenging Callan. He is a former Microsoft program manager who previously served as the president of the Issaquah School Board and in the state House from 2013 to 2017. Magendanz stepped down to run for state Senate in 2016, losing to Sen. Mark Mullet, and then ran again for state House in 2018 and lost to Rep. Bill Ramos.

    While in the Legislature, Magendanz maintained a conservative track record, including being the sole East King County legislator of either party to vote against a transportation bill that would've reduced traffic gridlock on the I-405 corridor. Magendanz is running to cut corporate oversight laws that protect workers, consumers, and the environment. Magendanz is proud of his "A" rating from the National Rifle Association during his last campaign, which raises questions about his willingness to keep our communities safe from gun violence.

    Rep. Callan is the clear choice in this race and deserves to be re-elected to Position 2 in the 5th Legislative District.

    Tana Senn

    Evergreen Future
    Evergreen Future
  • Rep. Tana Senn is running for re-election to the 41st Legislative District in Position 1, where she has served since 2013. As a working mother, Senn has aimed to be a champion for Washington’s families and currently chairs the Children, Youth & Families Committee.

    Senn has been a strong voice for preventing gun violence, making child care more affordable, working towards pay equity, and expanding mental health services and resources. This session, she voted for legislation to prohibit the sale of high-capacity firearm magazines and a bill to set new state carbon reduction goals. She has also sponsored legislation to establish the Washington State Office of Equity and require the state to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, pointing our state in the right direction to fight climate change. One of the few disappointments in Senn's progressive track record was her opposition to the missing middle housing bill this year that would have improved affordability by allowing more dense housing options near transit. If re-elected, Senn will continue to prioritize public education investments, environmental protections, and keeping our communities safe from gun violence.

    Senn faces a challenge from Republican Mike Nykreim, who is technically running under the Election Integrity Party. His main priority for running is to question election security, echoing the conspiracy theories of the extremists who tried to overturn the will of the people last presidential election. As of mid-July, Nykreim's website is not accessible.

    Rep. Senn has been a strong advocate for her district and is the clear choice in this race.

  • Democratic incumbent Rep. My-Linh Thai is seeking her third term representing the 41st Legislative District in the state House. Before joining the Legislature, Thai served as the president of the Bellevue School District and as the vice president of the Washington State School Board Directors Association. She was the first refugee elected to the state House and is now the vice chair of the Democratic Caucus.

    In office, Thai has been a staunch advocate for investments in public education to ensure all Washington kids have access to equitable resources and the chance to thrive. She also recently sponsored progressive bills such as the Working Families Tax Credit, a bill requiring the translation of prescription medicine so that all communities can receive accurate health information, and legislation to remove barriers for civil cases involving police violence. She is now running for re-election to keep fighting for students and educational resources, social equity, environmental protections, and community health.

    Two Republicans are challenging Rep. Thai for this seat, Al Rosenthal and Elle Nguyen. Rosenthal is a retired Boeing engineer who now owns retail property and a commercial office. Instead of investing in addiction treatment and stable housing so we can all be safe, healthy, and secure, Rosenthal wants to divide us with fear and cast blame on our neighbors who are struggling the most.

    Elle Nguyen, who calls herself a “real estate tycoon,” is a conservative candidate running to bring far-right policy to the Legislature. Nguyen ran for Mercer Island School Board unsuccessfully in 2021 when she attributed her loss to having contracted COVID-19. Nguyen joins other MAGA Republicans who oppose accurate, quality education that celebrates our country’s diversity; instead, she wants to write some of our communities out of the history books. If elected, she would oppose progressive policies that invest in our communities so that we can all access health, safety, and security in our lives.

    Rep. Thai is the clear choice in this race. An unwavering community advocate, she deserves to be re-elected to the 41st Legislative District, Position 2.

  • Sen. Manka Dhingra is running for re-election in the 45th Legislative District. Dhingra was first elected to the seat in 2017 and she now serves as the deputy majority floor leader. She is a senior prosecuting attorney in King County, and she has worked in crisis intervention training for law enforcement and worked with an array of diversion courts. Dhingra also helped start API Chaya, a well-respected resource for people experiencing gender-based violence in our community.

    Dhingra has worked to foster justice, healing, and community safety while in office. Recently, she co-sponsored climate action legislation and voted for three key gun safety bills: banning ghost guns, banning firearms in certain locations like schools and government events, and prohibiting the sale of high-capacity firearm magazines. In this election, she is campaigning to fight for reproductive freedom and strengthen law enforcement training and accountability resources.

    Republican Ryika Hooshangi is challenging Dhingra on a reactionary platform. Hooshangi is an attorney and former state diplomat who works as an elected commissioner for the Sammamish Plateau Water District. She is running to pour more funding into militarizing and expanding police forces while stripping away accountability measures that keep our communities safer. If elected, Hooshangi would oppose efforts by progressive leaders to expand health care access and rebalance our tax code.

    Sen. Dhingra deserves your vote for re-election to represent the 45th Legislative District to keep working for resilient and healthy communities.

  • Rep. Roger Goodman is seeking re-election to Legislative District 45, Position 1 where he has been a reliable Democratic voice since first joining in 2007. Outside of the Legislature, Goodman is an attorney at a private practice and previously served on the board of Hopelink, a local organization that works to end poverty.

    This past session, Goodman was a sponsor on key legislation to keep schools and government spaces safe from gun violence, direct resources towards missing Indigenous women cases, and invest in middle housing. He believes strengthening police accountability and providing support so all Washingtonians can meet their basic needs are what make our communities safer. If re-elected, Goodman would focus on protecting reproductive freedom in our state, improving mental health resources, and creating more affordable housing options.

    Republican salon owner Cherese Bourgoin is challenging Rep. Goodman this year. Bourgoin currently serves as the vice president of Kirkland’s Chamber of Commerce board and ran unsuccessfully for Kirkland City Council last year. If elected, she would oppose community investments that improve our schools, oppose making health care more affordable, and would not create solutions to the housing crisis. Instead, Bourgoin wants to give tax breaks to corporations and the wealthy while putting more money towards expanding and militarizing police forces.

    Rep. Goodman is the best choice in this race for House Position 1 in the 45th Legislative District. He deserves your vote to keep bringing effective leadership to Olympia.

  • Rep. Larry Springer is seeking re-election to the 45th Legislative District, Position 2 in the state House. Before joining the Legislature in 2005, Springer served on the Kirkland City Council, including four years as mayor. Outside of elected office, he runs a local wine shop and serves in a number of volunteer capacities including on the board of Hopelink, which provides emergency services for those who need them most in Kirkland.

    Springer has advocated for key community investments in Olympia so that we can all access the basics like housing stability, a quality education, and health care. His priorities this past session included providing support for small businesses, protecting salmon and our ecosystems, and investing in stable housing. Springer made progress on these issues and also voted to protect our communities from high-capacity firearms and to better balance tenant rights with landlord powers.

    MAGA Republican Amber Krabach is challenging Rep. Springer in this race. Despite the fact that Washingtonians are struggling to afford basics like rent, gas, groceries, and prescription medicine, Krabach is running on the single, conspiracy-based issue of election fraud. She serves on a GOP committee that casts doubt on democratic election results in order to divide us and help Republicans hold onto power, and she believes the lie that Trump won the 2020 presidential election. Krabach’s campaign website isn’t working as of late June but it is clear that her extremist campaign does not reflect the most pressing needs of the district.

    Also running in this race is another far-right candidate, John Gibbons. He previously ran for House Position 1 in 2020 when he wrongfully blamed the hardships many of us have faced due to the recent economic downturn on the “poor decisions” of working Washingtonians. Now, Gibbons is running to cut funding to the community services that are helping to put food on the table, make health care accessible, and create more housing stability. His campaign priorities also include stripping Washingtonians of reproductive freedom, divesting from essential public transit while funneling even more money to militarize policing in our communities, and repealing our state’s comprehensive sexual health curriculum, which has been approved by the Legislature and voters.

    The voters deserve a representative who will stay in touch with the most pressing issues in our communities instead of getting distracted by conspiracy theories and divisive ideologies. Rep. Larry Springer is the clear choice for House Position 2 in the 45th Legislative District.
