Morrison ran in a special election to fill representative Jay Inslee's seat for a one-month term before the 2012-2014 term began. 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.[1]

Four full-term challengers also ran for the one-month term: Suzan DelBene (D), Laura Ruderman (D), Darshan Rauniyar (D), and John Koster (R). Morrison is one of six candidates who ran just for the one-month term. Brian Berry (D), Brian Sullivan (D), J. Byron Holcomb (D), Steven Gerdes (R), and Bob Champion (I) also ran for the seat.[2] Suzan DelBene (D) and John Koster advanced past the primary. DelBene went on to defeat Koster in the general election.
