The simple answer is no. An endorsement is based on a candidate's answers on both their questionnaire and in their candidate interview. If a candidate is an incumbent, we also look carefully at their record in office on working family issues.
We like to say we don't have permanent friends; we have permanent issues. Our endorsement process reflects that motto.
Any candidate, whether Republican or Democrat or Independent, is more than welcome to go through our process. If you are a candidate and would like to go through our process, you can contact Political Coordinator Dustin Lambro at 206-441-4860 x1262. We will give priority to requests that come from our members.
