WSNA-PAC primary endorsements


The WSNA-PAC endorsement process

WSNA-PAC (Political Action Committee) is committed to its mission as a nonpartisan organization representing the interests of registered nurses concerned with promoting quality patient care through the political process.

WSNA-PAC endorses in many statewide and state legislative races but does not endorse for Federal Elections such as Congressional or Presidential races. In the 2017 special election, WSNA-PAC will be focused on several state legislative races.

WSNA-PAC takes many factors into account prior to endorsing a candidate, including but not limited to:

  • Returned WSNA-PAC questionnaire (.docx)
  • Interview with WSNA members and staff
  • Voting record on nursing and labor issues, if incumbent

No WSNA dues money is used for candidate contributions, and contributions to the WSNA-PAC are voluntary. In order for us to be of assistance, in addition to lending our name to candidates that we know will support us, we’d like to help them financially. We cannot do so without your help. Please consider giving to the WSNA-PAC fund today to increase our leverage and give candidates the help that they need to win. Visit wsna.org/PAC/donate.

For any further questions or to find out how to get involved, please contact Political Action Specialist Nathasja Skorupa.
