Today Secretary of State Kim Wyman released a long list of bipartisan endorsements for her reelection campaign, including dozens of prominent state and local office holders representing communities across Washington State.
“I am honored by the bipartisan support that I have already received during my reelection campaign,” said Secretary of State Wyman.
“With the ever-increasing partisanship on the national level, it is essential to have someone in the Secretary of State’s office who voters can trust. Kim is a leading figure in the elections community, and is dedicated to the impartial and fair administration of elections,” said former State Auditor Brian Sonntag (D).
“Kim is the only candidate running who is qualified to perform the duties of Secretary of State. This is not a job for an inexperienced partisan activist, or a position that permits on-the-job training,” said former Secretary of State Sam Reed (R). “Other states look to us as a leader in election reform because of Kim’s experience, leadership, and capability,” added former Secretary of State Ralph Munro (R).
“Secretary of State Kim Wyman has kept Washington a national voting leader,” said former Washington State Supreme Court Chief Justice Gerry Alexander (NP). “Her non-partisan approach and hard work to keep our elections successful has kept Washington as a model state for voting accessibility and security."
Secretary of State Kim Wyman is the only candidate in her race who has received bipartisan endorsements from Democrats, Republicans, and non-partisan office-holders, and the only candidate with endorsements from local election officials.
