Print Friendly, PDF & Email

(Nov. 3, 2020—10 p.m.) — The nation will have to wait a few days for a result in a tight presidential race, but in Washington state, labor-endorsed candidates were leading in many races late Tuesday night. Gov. Jay Inslee and most labor-endorsed statewide candidates were cruising to election victories, including Chris Reykdal who easily won re-election as Superintendent of Public Instruction.

In congressional races, all incumbent U.S. Representatives were re-elected, and in the Democrat-vs.-Democrat race for the open seat in the 10th District, Marilyn Strickland defeated Beth Doglio.

In the key races for Washington State Legislature, labor-endorsed Senate challengers Ingrid Anderson (D-5th), Helen Price Johnson (D-10th), and T’wina Nobles (D-28th) are all leading their races, but Sen. Dean Takko (D-19th) appears to have lost his race for re-election. Meanwhile, several labor-endorsed challengers appear poised to increase the Democratic majority in the state House as well.

Following are selected 2020 election results from Washington state as of 10 p.m. on Election Night. The next major update will be after 4 p.m. on Wednesday. Check Vote.WA.gov for the latest results.
