Hello Democrats and Happy Friday!

With Super Tuesday and the State of the Union behind us – November’s presidential election is coming more clearly into view and the stakes are getting higher every single day. 

Please join me in cheering President Biden’s victory in all major contests! We must keep building momentum and ensure every voter under our big tent is ready to participate and get engaged. Thank you for all you have done and will continue to do to get out the Democratic vote!

It’s a disappointment, but not a surprise that former President Donald Trump also won the vast majority of available delegates on the GOP side. In doing so effectively closing the path for his last remaining challenger, Amb. Nikki Haley and spurring her decision to concede her candidacy. Trump responded in a characteristic and deeply off-putting manner, calling her a “birdbrain” and saying he had no interest in bringing in her supporters. 

I think we can now say with confidence that it will be another Trump vs. Biden matchup this November and we need to commit to working together to ensure Democrats carry the day. We have a very ugly campaign season ahead of us and we must be ready to be tough, take the high road, and take every opportunity we can to remind voters that Democrats are the Party who will work around the clock to improve their lives. 

It is not hyperbole, and it bears repeating, that our Democracy is once again under threat. Trump has openly said that if elected he will “be a dictator on day one” and any suggestion to the contrary by Trump or others is wishful thinking or a flat out lie. We have no choice but to put everything on the line, work 24/7, and do everything in our power to win. I’m counting on all of you to show up and do the work every day between now and Election Day! 

One more thing – if you haven’t yet voted in our WA State Democratic Presidential Primary – Please return your ballot ASAP to make your voice heard in this critical election! 

If you still need to register to vote, or want to check the status of your ballot – you can do so at VoteWA.gov – and dropbox locations can be found here! 


As the 2024 legislative session comes to a close – please join me in thanking all of our terrific Democratic lawmakers for their hard work on behalf of the people of Washington State! 

Congratulations to our powerful and diverse Democratic majorities for all their hard work to move our state forward – and an even bigger (if that’s possible) congratulations and thank you to Governor Jay Inslee for three incredible terms. 

We should be proud of all we have accomplished, but we also cannot forget that our majorities aren’t set in stone (we’ve only held the Senate since 2017). If we want to keep leading the nation in powerful Democratic legislation we must never stop fighting hard to win races at the state level and never yield a single inch!

Big shout out to NC Chair and personal friend Anderson Clayton – who provided great insight during Rachel Maddow’s coverage of Tuesday’s results!
