AWB announces legislative candidate endorsements

OLYMPIA — The Association of Washington Business has endorsed 29 additional candidates for the Washington State Legislature following a statewide interview process.

Candidate endorsements are the result of a months-long process based on member input and candidate interviews. In the case of incumbents, any candidate with an 80 percent or higher voting record with the association receives an automatic endorsement. Automatic endorsements were announced last week.

The AWB board of directors voted this week on the following additional endorsements. Another round of endorsements will be made in September at AWB’s annual Policy Summit.
