2020 Candidate Endorsements

Who will fill these Chambers during the 2021 Session?

It’s time to fill the Washington State House and Senate with leaders who will faithfully champion Life, Religious Freedom, Marriage and Family, Parental Rights, and Christian Social Justice.

FPIW Action thanks all candidates who responded to our Primary candidate questionnaire. Below are the lists of legislative candidates who we have received our early endorsement, prior to this year’s Primary on Tuesday, August 4. This list of early endorsed candidates share our values on Life, Marriage and Family, Parental Rights, Religious Freedom, and Christian Social Justice and will help insure Christians and people of faith views and values are represented in elected office.

FPIW Action is in the process of conducting its second round of endorsements following the results of Washington State’s Top-Two Primary on August 4. Candidates who did not receive an early endorsement, are now under consideration for an FPIW Action General Election endorsement.

In addition to the candidates’ questionnaire answers, we will look at other factors such as election viability, other documented endorsements, and a track record of Christian or family policy advocacy and other actions. Incumbents are further assessed based on their legislative scorecard of session votes taken with regards to FPIW’s 2020 and 2019 legislative agenda, which can be found at here.
