A Republican-led House could reverse or defund President Biden’s executive actions.

A Republican-led House could promote bogus hearings and sham “oversight” commissions.

Unqualified extremists like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, and Lauren Boebert could get important committee seats.

WA-08 is rated as D+1. Democrats have a slight advantage here compared to the country as a whole, and must hold this seat to protect their U.S. House majority.

Note: If this office has an incumbent, the incumbent is shown here. Swing Left will support the Democratic nominee following the primary, or pre-primary only if they are running unopposed, with the exception of statewide incumbents in competitive gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races, which have received early support.

Our team considers factors like how a district or state has voted in previous elections, how the district or state has voted depending on the party in power in the White House, the party of the elected incumbent and whether they're running for re-election, and any history of attempts to restrict voting. This year, we're also taking the results of redistricting into account.
