The Washington State Democratic Party launched our inaugural Rooted to Win program in 2021, with local candidates running In Every Race In Every Place!
In 2023, there are thousands of great Democrats running for local office across Washington state, and our Rooted to Win program helps candidates win their local races. In 2023, Rooted to Win Candidates will be 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 Election Day, 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!
