|U.S. House, Washington, District 1|
2012 one month short term special election
Champion ran in a special election to fill retiring representative Jay Inslee's seat for a one-month term before the 2012-2014 term begins. The special election took place on the same primary and general election dates as the full term. Washington was redistricted in 2012; the short-term replacement was elected by the pre-2012 district, and the representative for 2012-2014 was elected by the newly redrawn district.
Five full-term challengers also ran for the one-month term: Suzan DelBene (D), Laura Ruderman (D), Darshan Rauniyar (D), and John Koster (R), and Champion is one of six candidates who ran just for the one-month term: Champion (I), Brian Berry (D), Brian Sullivan (D), Ruth Morrison (D), Steven Gerdes (R), and J. Byron Holcomb (D). As in the full-term election, the top two vote-getters in the August 7 primary advanced to the general election ballot. Champion was defeated by Suzan DelBene and John Koster.
