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. Judy Arbogast (D) and incumbent Jan Angel (R) are unopposed in the primary.
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.

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.
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.
Angel won re-election in the 2012 election for Washington House of Representatives District 26a. Angel advanced past the blanket primary on August 7, 2012, and defeated Karin Ashabraner (D) in the general election, which took place on November 6, 2012.

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.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.

The Freedom Foundation releases its Big Spender List annually. The Institute ranks all Washington legislators based on their total proposed tax and fee increases. To find each legislator’s total, the Institute adds up the 10-year tax increases or decreases, as estimated by Washington’s Office of Financial Management, of all bills sponsored or co-sponsored by that legislator.
Angel proposed a 10-year increase in state taxes and fees of $178.7 million, the 51st highest amount of proposed new taxes and fees of the 93 Washington state representatives on the Freedom Foundation’s 2012 Big Spender List.
The Freedom Foundation also issued its 2012 Informed Voter Guide for Washington State voters, including a legislative score card documenting how Washington State legislators voted upon bills the Foundation deemed important legislation. The legislation analyzed covered budget, taxation, and pension issues. A sign indicates a bill more in line with the Foundation's stated goals, and a sign indicates a bill out of step with the Foundation's values. Here's how Angel voted on the specific pieces of legislation:
