ELECTION 2018: Primary results final – Nguyen, Braddock advance in 34th District State Senate

Two weeks after the August primary election, final results were certified today. So it’s official – Joe Nguyen and Shannon Braddock will face off for the 34th District State Senate seat from which Sharon Nelson is retiring. They finished atop the 11-candidate field, with 14,019 votes for Nguyen, 11,114 votes for Braddock. Neither has held elected office before; he hasn’t run for office before, while Braddock finished 39 votes behind Lisa Herbold in the 2015 City Council District 1 race. Both are West Seattleites.

    If only Shannon had  found 40 more votes. She would have been a much needed moderating presence on the City Council.Best of luck in November!

    Congrats to Joe! After learning that Joe completely distanced himself from the anti-transit tactics of Bob “I will literally kill light rail to West Seattle” Hasegawa, I am a supporter!Joe has pledged that, unlike Hasegawa, he won’t betray the Democratic Party by teaming up with eastern Washington Republicans to find ways to weaken Sound Transit or our other transit agencies. Thanks, Joe!

    Always fun spotting single issue voters in the wild.

      I’m a huge fan of all 3 (or 4) of the issues you listed.

        As much as I support our right to reproductive autonomy, proclaiming yourself a “huge fan” of abortion is glib and gross.

    Which one of these is the most left-leaning?

  • Mike in WS August 22, 2018 (9:32 am)

    If things don’t change- then things won’t change.  Two more left leaning candidates to push their socialist agendas.  YUK- better choices please

    • WSB August 22, 2018 (9:42 am)

      Voters had plenty of choices in the primary: 11 candidates, including 2 Republicans and 2 independents.

      Then why don’t you run for office or help campaign instead of saying a meaningless comment? Quit complaining and do something about it. 

  • MJ August 22, 2018 (11:03 am)

    Any word regarding a candidate debate/forum in WS?

    • WSB August 22, 2018 (11:35 am)

      Haven’t heard any dates yet but the Chamber has said it intends to present one.
