Elections

2014

See also: Washington State Senate elections, 2014

Elections for 25 districts in the Washington State Senate will take place in 2014. A blanket primary election took place on August 5, 2014. The general election will be held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was May 17, 2014. Judy Arbogast (D) and incumbent Jan Angel (R) were unopposed in the primary. Arbogast and Angel will face off in the general election.[2][3]

2013

See also: State legislative special elections, 2013

Angel won election in the special election for Washington State Senate District 26. The election was for the remaining year of Derek Kilmer (D)'s term. Nathan Schlicher was selected to fill Kilmer's vacancy for the 2013 legislative session. Angel defeated incumbent Nathan Schlicher (D) in the special election, which took place on November 5. Schlicher conceded the race after trailing by more than 1,500 votes on November 7.[4][5]

     Republican Green check mark transparent.pngJan Angel 52.1% 24,112
     Democratic Nathan Schlicher Incumbent 47.9% 22,192
Total Votes 46,304

More than $2.3 million has been spent on this race, making it the most expensive state legislative campaign in Washington history. The candidates themselves reported spending nearly $1.2 million while outside spending as accounted for another $1.2 million. More than half of that million was spent in opposition of Angel. This campaign drew significant interest because the Republican-led coalition held a one-vote majority in the chamber. Analysts believed that should Angel win the seat, it may give Republicans a foothold that will be hard to lose in the midterm elections next year. A win for Schlicher, however, may seal the fate of the Republican-lead coalition in those same elections.[6]

A week before this special election, internal polling by both Democrats and Republicans showed the race to be a virtual tie. In an August 6 primary, Angel defeated Schlicher by more than nine points - 54.6% to 45.4%. The district is considered evenly split, with President Obama winning by 900 votes in the 2012 presidential election.[7]

Scorecards

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Arizona scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
