When are the confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court nominee?
The Democratic primary itself is what I'm thinking about, as Washington has lots of prominent Democrats with no obvious frontrunner. I'm sure most of the major prospects have been anticipating the retirement, and we could be in for a real dogfight unless there's a coronation of a single party candidate. Also, Washington has a top-two runoff primary system in OTL, not sure if that's also the case in universe.Not really. Should be a Democratic hold, since it is a blue state. Unless it is a Republican wave year, which is certainly possible since 2024 is a "sixth year itch" election.
