Elections for the office of Washington State Senate will consist of a blanket primary election on August 5, 2014, and a general election on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was May 17, 2014. Incumbent Marko Liias (D) and Dan Matthews (R) are unopposed in the primary.
Matthews ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Washington's 2nd District. Dan Matthews and Rick Larsen advanced past the blanket primary and faced off in the general election on November 6, 2012. Larsen won.
Larsen led Matthews in fundraising by a fair margin, with Larsen having over $1 million and Matthews with $220,000. No other candidate raised a significant amount.
