Elections for 25 districts in the Washington State Senate took place in 2014. A blanket primary election took place on August 5, 2014. The general election was held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was May 17, 2014. Mohammad Said (D) and Representative Judith Warnick (R) were unopposed in the primary. Said was defeated by Warnick in the general election.
Said ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Washington's 4th District. He sought the nomination as a Democrat and faced incumbent Doc Hastings (R), Mary Baechler (D), and Jamie Wheeler (R) in the August 7 primary. The top two vote-getters, regardless of party, were on the general election ballot. He was defeated in the August 7, 2012, primary.
Republican incumbent Doc Hastings won with almost 68% of the vote in 2010.
As of late July, Hastings had a huge lead in fundraising. Physician Said and tea party activist Wheeler had under $5,000 each, with professional community organizer Baechler just exceeding that in the last reporting period.
On the issues, Hastings hd a record of supporting budget cuts and opposing the Affordable Care Act. Wheeler wanted to defund several major federal agencies. Palestinian-born Said focused on foreign policy issues, wanting a nuclear-free Middle East. Baechler wanted to defend Social Security and Medicare programs.
The district Democratic Party backed Baechler.
