Thank you for your email question. We welcome people to suggest progressive candidates for our consideration of volunteer writer support via postcards. For those people who wanted to suggest candidates to us this year we sent out the following letter copied below. Hope this helps.

~Postcards4WA Team

Thank you for suggesting that we support ______________ with postcards to voters in [his/her/their] district! We’d like to learn more about this candidate.

Postcards4WA is especially interested in supporting progressive candidates who:
----Have the potential to take a seat away from a conservative incumbent OR are a progressive incumbent in a close race against a conservative challenger
----Are running against an opponent who has problematic affiliations (such as QAnon, 3 Percent, etc.)
----Are Black, Indigenous, people of color, or a member of any group that may face disproportionate barriers in running for office
----Are running in races located within Congressional District 8 (Rep. Schrier’s district)
----Are likely running in close races (estimated to be within about 5% of their nearest opponent).

Could you let us know:
----Which criteria (listed above) does this candidate meet?
----What county is this race in?
----What other information will be of interest to volunteer writers about this candidate or this race?
----Where can we find out more about this candidate? (Website, social media, etc.)
----What is this candidate’s email address and phone number?

Thank you for helping us keep Washington BLUE!
