    2015 Naughty List

    From Olympia to DC, Republicans haven't been very nice in 2015. Here's who we think Santa might be skipping this year:  

    First GOP candidate for Governor

    The race for Governor has begun. Jay Inslee has his first Republican opponent. Three years ago, the Washington State Republican Party thought they had the Governor’s race all locked up. But they were wrong! You elected Jay Inslee because he had a stronger vision for our state — and the Republican Party was furious!

    TONIGHT: Hillary for WA event in Seattle

    Do you support Hillary Clinton for President? There's an event tonight that you should know about. The first Hillary for Washington Grassroots Organizing Meeting is tonight in Seattle. This is an exciting opportunity to be on the ground floor of the movement to elect Hillary Clinton for President.

    Voting Rights Act

    History has taught us: Our government is stronger if every voice is heard. Sadly, today in Washington, that’s just not happening. Injustice in our election system means many communities, especially communities of color, aren’t being fairly represented by government.

    We did it!

    Great news out of Olympia yesterday — Democrats in the House passed legislation to raise the minimum wage and provide sick and safe leave! House Bill 1355 increases our state’s minimum wage to $12 per hour, helping struggling families provide for their loved ones and taking us a step forward in building an economy that works for everyone.

    Bernie Sander’s in

    Democrats have another candidate for President! On Thursday, Senator Bernie Sanders announced that he's in for 2016. Bernie has been a strong progressive in the Senate, representing Vermont in Congress for 27 years. With income inequality as the cornerstone of his campaign, Bernie knows that this economy is working more for the wealthiest Americans, when it should be working

    The most important race this year

    There’s only one race for Legislature this year, and control of the State House could be at stake. Carol Gregory was appointed to the House for the 30th Legislative District, and she’s running this November to retain her seat.
