2016 Endorsements

I am proud to be endorsed by every former Secretary of State, and nearly 60 current and former county auditors and elections directors from every single county in Washington. As the only candidate with endorsements from elections officials, I am honored to have this level of bi-partisan support from Democratic, Republican, and non-partisan elections professionals. These dedicated men and women conduct accurate and fair elections across our state and I am thankful for their combined vote of confidence in me.
