Aug 7 - Washington and a Special Election in Ohio!

Finishing up the Aug 7 primaries, we have Washington! A solid blue state, and let's keep it that way!


Also, WA is a jungle-primary state like CA for its state races, meaning only the top 2 go on regardless of party.


For Senate, Maria Cantwell is up. She has no real primary opposition (though a LOT of Rep challengers) and she is a solid bet to win.


The House races are much more interesting! There are 3 potential pickup opportunities here!

WA3 (SW corner, the WA burbs of Portland): Carolyn Long is the Emily's List endorsed candidate.

WA5 (Spokane and eastern edge): Lisa Brown is the Emily's List endorsed candidate

WA8 (Eastern Seattle suburbs to Wenatchee): Kim Schrier is the Emily's List endorsed candidate.


On to state level, half the State Senate is up! Much like NY, the Senate is almost evenly divided and Republicans have control because of a rogue Democrat caucusing with them. So we need to pick up a couple seats! Also, WA is a jungle-primary state like CA for its state races, meaning only the top 2 go on.

SD30 (Seattle area): Claire Wilson is the Emily's List endorsed candidate to flip the seat.

SD34 (Seattle area): 7 Dems are running for this open seat. THIS IS THE GENERAL!

SD35 (Olympia area and Western Seattle burbs): IMPORTANT!!! Tim Sheldon screwed over the Dems and gave control to the Republicans, so he needs to go. His challenger is Irene Bowling.

SD42 (Bellingham): 2 Dems are running to flip this seat.

Full List


State House - the whole House is up, and Dems narrowly control is, so we need to turnout well to keep it that way! Just a note, House districts are the same as Senate districts, with 2 House members for each, in separate races.

HD6b (Spokane): 2 Dems are running to flip the open seat

HD7b (NE corner): 2 Dems are running to flip this seat.

HD14a and b (Yakima and southern border): both spots are open, 2 Dems running in each.

HD17a (WA burbs of Portland): 2 Dems are running to flip this seat.

HD25a (Seattle area): 2 Dems are running to flip the open seat

HD32b (Seattle area): 2 Dems running to hold this open seat. Lauren Davis is the Emily's List endorsed candidate.

HD40a (Bellingham, Mt Vernon): Debra Lekanoff is the Emily's List endorsed candidate for this open seat.

HD41b (Seattle area): 2 Dems running to hold this open seat. Maybe both of them will get through?

HD48b (Seattle area): 2 Dems running to hold this open seat. Maybe both of them will get through?

Full List


No major municipal elections now.


In addition to primaries, there is a special election for the 12th House district of Ohio. This is an area north and east of Columbus. Danny O'Connor is our candidate, and its only R+7, so we can totally flip this seat with some turnout!!


Get out there WA and OH!!!!
