|U.S. House, Washington, District 1|
2012 one month short term special election
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.
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. Suzan DelBene (D) and John Koster advanced past the primary. DelBene went on to defeat Koster in the general election.
