Washington primaries feature candidates from all parties on a single ballot. The top two finishers advance to the general election.
Sen. Patty Murray (D) and nurse Tiffany Smiley (R) are expected to finish 1-2 in a large primary field. A few polls earlier this year showed Murray ahead in the general election by high single-digits, prompting some forecasters to move it out of the 'safe' category. However, more recent polls show Murray with closer to a 20% lead.
These primaries will be contested using redistricted boundaries.
||Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler is seeking a 7th term. One of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump, she has drawn several challengers from the right, including Joe Kent, endorsed by the former president. There are also two Democrats on the ballot.
||Rep. Dan Newhouse (R), who also supported impeachment, has drawn a challenge from Trump-endorsed Loren Culp, who lost to Jay Inslee (D) in the 2020 gubernatorial race. There are six other Republicans and one Democrat on the ballot.
||Rep. Kim Schrier (D) is seeking a third term in the state's most competitive general election district. She is expected to advance, with 10 candidates vying for the second spot.
