Democrats list endorsements


Rep. Cyrus Habib has been nominated as the Democratic Party candidate for state Senate from the 48th Legislative District, and former Kirkland Mayor Joan McBride as the candidate for the seat Cyrus will vacate in the state Legislature. Rep. Ross Hunter was nominated for re-election to his legislative seat.

U.S. Rep. Susan DelBene (D-First District) and Rep. Adam Smith (D-9th District) received the district party sole endorsements for re-election to Congress.

The 48th LD Democrats solely endorsed Judge Janet Garrow for Northeast District Court Position 1 and Judge Ketu Shah for Position 2.

Lisa O'Toole and Marcus Naylor were dually endorsed for District Court Position 3.

"As judges pro tem, both candidates survived a rigorous and competitive hiring process to substitute for elected judges," said Kouse. "Our members believe that each candidate brings valuable background and perspectives to the judiciary."

Superior Court and other candidate endorsements will be considered in June.
