Sabato's Crystal Ball: Safe R
Washington is one of three states to use a blanket primary, or top-two system, which allows all candidates to run and all voters to vote but only moves the top two vote-getters, regardless of party affiliation, to the general election.
Heading into the election the incumbent is Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R), who was first elected in 2004.
Washington's 5th Congressional District is located in the eastern portion of the state and includes Pend Orelle, Stevens, Ferry, Lincoln, Spokane, Whitman, Asotin, Garfield, Whitman, Columbia and Walla Walla counties.
