2018 Swing Districts Coming Soon!
Special election Nov 7, 2017
- Totem Lake
Our Candidate, Manka Dhingra, WON!
Manka Dhingra became the first candidate to enter the election for this critical seat. A long-time prosecutor, she has worked tirelessly to reform and improve our criminal justice system, particularly in its treatment of the mentally ill. As an award-winning PTSA parent leader, education funding is one of her key priorities. See Manka’s complete biography here.
No matter where you live in the state, consider making a contribution directly to Manka early in the election cycle, to give Manka the resources she needs to fight what will certainly be furious Republican opposition. Donations which come in early (now) are especially impactful, as this is the key time to build a successful campaign. Get to her site here.

Our Candidate: Michelle Rylands
Michelle is a U.S. Army veteran, President of the Auburn Council of PTA's, a Teamster, and a mother of two children in Auburn Public Schools.

Learn more about Michelle on her campaign site here.
Michelle needs the help of concerned Washingtonians from across the entire state to win the 31st. Please consider donating directly to her campaign here. An early donation is strongly encouraged to help Michelle’s organization develop momentum in the race. Thank you!
Around the corner in 2018: four more Republican-held Senate districts could potentially swing to the Democrats including:
- #30 (Federal Way)
- #47 (Covington/Kent)
- #42 (North Bellingham and north to the border)
- #6 (Spokane suburbs).
The odds are in our favor. In 2018, the Democrats will have only one swing district to defend:
- #44 (area just east of Everett)
