Incumbent Rep. Kim Schrier first won the 8th district seat in 2018, when she defeated Dino Rossi. She was a physician at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Issaquah since 2001, before entering the political realm in 2018 to fill then-Congressman Dave Reichert’s seat. In 2020, she’s been endorsed by The Seattle Times, former President Barack Obama, former Vice President and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, and Gov. Jay Inslee.

Republican challenger Jesse Jensen is a military veteran and former Army Ranger, having served on four combat tours. He’s endorsed by former Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna, as well as Congressmen Dan Crenshaw (Texas), Mike Gallagher (Wisconsin), and Mike Waltz (Florida).

Schrier pulled in just over 43% of the vote in the August Primary, followed by Jensen at 20%. Combined, Republican candidates totaled 49% of the vote in the Primary.
