Learn how each of our WSNA-PAC endorsed candidates performed in the election, including two WSNA nurses.

Illustration election

This week Washington state held their primary election. Your WSNA-PAC watches these election results closely to see how our endorsed candidates perform. The criteria that the WSNA-PAC Board uses in order to cast endorsements is largely based on each candidate’s support for nurses, as well as voting records if they are incumbents. If you're not sure which legislative district you live in, you can search by your home address to find out.

The Secretary of State’s website is updated regularly with results as counties report. As a reminder, the WSNA-PAC endorses candidates at the state level only, we do not endorse federal candidates.

Two WSNA members are running for State Representative this fall, and both of them received the highest percentage of votes in their primary election. Terri Niles (D), in legislative district 17, received 43.4% of the vote; Duncan Camacho (D), in legislative district 18, received 44.3% of the vote. However, in both cases, each ran against multiple candidates of the opposing party, so the vote against them was split. These two nurses will need your support to prevail in the general election!

Below is a detailed accounting of how each of our WSNA-PAC endorsed candidates performed initially in the election.
