Key race

The Senate election in Washington has turned into a close race to watch. Incumbent Sen. Patty Murray (D) is running for a sixth term and faces a surprisingly tough challenge from Republican Tiffany Smiley, a nurse who is running for public office for the first time. In the state’s open, multi-party primary, Murray won more than 50 percent of the vote and Smiley won around 34 percent. But since the primary, Republicans have been funneling money into Smiley’s campaign and polls have tightened in the weeks leading up to the election.

Murray (D) is projected to win. An estimated 99 percent of votes have been counted.

U.S. House

Washington’s 3rd and 8th Congressional Districts are major targets for both parties in the race for control of the House. In the 3rd District, Democrat Marie Gluesenkamp Perez faces Trump-endorsed election denier Joe Kent (R), who advanced from the primary over incumbent Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R), one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump after the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection. In the 8th District, two-term incumbent Rep. Kim Schrier (D) is being challenged by Republican lawyer Matt Larkin.

The Post estimated the lean of 2022 congressional districts using 2020 presidential results by precinct from Decision Desk HQ and estimates where actual votes at the precinct level were unavailable. Districts classified as “Strong Biden” and “Strong Trump” show where a candidate is estimated to have won by 15 percentage points or more. “Lean Biden” and “Lean Trump” districts had estimated vote margins between five and 15 points. “Close” districts show an estimated margin within five points.
