The Washington State Democratic Party is excited to work with and highlight Democratic candidates running for local office in 2021! The inaugural Rooted to Win program is a unique opportunity for 2021 local candidates running In Every Race In Every Place to reach new audiences online through the Washington State Democratic Party.
There are thousands of great Democrats running for local office across Washington state, and our Rooted to Win candidates are some of the most exciting to watch and lend your support to this year. Specifically, Rooted to Win Candidates have been selected to be featured because they fit one or more of our program criteria:
- The candidate identifies as a member of a historically underrepresented community
- The candidate fits specific district needs and has a deep-seated interest in service to the community
- The candidate is running to replace a particularly problematic or unrepresentative conservative incumbent
- The candidate is running a campaign designed to win, but also to build for future Democratic success in their district
Rooted to Win is designed to expose these groundbreaking candidates and their campaigns to thousands of voters, supporters, and donors through the Washington State Democratic Party’s extensive online audiences. Between now and November 2, Rooted to Win candidates will be featured in online, email, and social media communications from the Party to expand their campaigns’ reach and propel them to victory!
See below for information on current Rooted to Win candidates and get connected to their campaigns through their websites and social media accounts! And, check back often for new Rooted to Win candidates between now and Election Day, November 2!
