In the last 10 days, I’ve had not one, but two MAGA Republican opponents file to challenge me in 2024. 

Bob Hagglund and Dale Whitaker

In 2022, Mr. Hagglund made clear his belief that “voter fraud” existed during the 2020 presidential election, buying into Trump’s Big Lie. At the same time, Mr. Whitaker’s deeply conservative organization – We Believe, We Vote – tends to offer glowing ratings to anti-choice candidates.

This week, the Democratic Association of Secretaries of State said, “Bob Hagglund would be a disaster for voting rights in Washington if elected. He has said that his first priority if elected would be implementing voter ID laws – despite research showing that they strongly discriminate against communities of color. He has even cast doubt on the 2020 election results, throwing his hat in with the most dangerous, radical elements of the Republican Party.”

With views this extreme, Mr. Hagglund and Mr. Whitaker must be kept as far away from the Office of the Secretary of State as possible. 

As your Secretary of State, I’m proud of the progress we’ve made over the last three years. Because of your support, we’ve added sophisticated cybersecurity systems to prevent election intrusion and interference, we’ve strengthened public libraries, and we’ve expanded democracy by making it easier for eligible voters to cast a ballot.

To defend this office I will need your support. I would greatly appreciate your contribution below to ensure we keep Washington moving forward, and to reject the MAGA agenda. 

Thank you,
