2020 General Election Update

Friday, November 6, 2020

 Below is an update of the November 3, 2020 General Election.  The last date for the Secretary of State to certify the General Election results is on Thursday, December 3.

State Political Makeup

The Governor, State House, and State Senate will remain in Democratic control with significant majorities.  While there are a few Legislative Districts that will flip from R to D or D to R, the balance of power looks to be about the same or maybe one or two shifting either way.  There are about 8 close races that won’t likely be decided until official certification later this month, none of which will change the outcome of the Democrat majorities but could impact how moderate or extreme those majorities will be ideologically.  These key races include:


General Election Key Races

The 5th LD has Democrat Senator Mark Mullet currently up by 18 votes ahead of his Democrat challenger Ingrid Anderson D and at this point is too close to call.  There is a possibility this race could go to a recount.

In the 10th LD, two races are too close to call at this time.  In the Senate, Republican Ron Muzzall is ahead of his Democrat Challenger Helen Price Johnson by 307 votes and this is another race that could possibly go to a recount.  For State Representative Position 1, Republican Greg Gilday also trails Angie Homola but with a larger margin of nearly 400 votes.  The other State Rep. Race looks decided with 51.1% of the vote going to Democrat Dave Paul over Republican Bill Bruch who only received 48.82%.

 The 17th LD down in Clark County has shown an unexpected upset with Republican Representative Vicki Kraft down 869 votes to her Democrat challenger Tanisha Harris.  It is possible that she retains her seat, but the outlook is grim.

 In the 19th LD it appears that Republicans have swept all three races flipping two Democrat seats in Senator Dean Takko and State Rep. Brian Blake Jeff Wilson is now the Republican Senator and Joel McEntire becomes the Republican State Rep. for the 19th.  These upsets were foreshadowed by Primary numbers that showed significant gains for the Republican candidates.

 Republican Senator Steve O’Ban in the 28th LD is appearing to lose ground and his seat to Democrat newcomer Twina Nobles.  Senator O’Ban trails by close to 2,000 votes and needs a miracle to close the gap.

 Lastly, in the 42nd LD Republican State Rep. Luanne Van Werven was not able to gain ground against Democrat challenger Alicia Rule and is likely to lose her bid for reelection.  Democrat incumbent State Rep. Sharon Shewmake is also winning her race against her Republican Challenger Jennifer Sefzik.

 We will continue to update you as additional election results come in and the Secretary of State Certifies the Washington State election.
