Elections

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.[2][3][4][5]

     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]

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. [15]

2012

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.[16]
