You can find a list of current WSNA-PAC endorsements below. This list will updated throughout the election season.

WSNA-PAC is committed to its mission as a nonpar­tisan organi­za­tion repre­senting the inter­ests of regis­tered nurses concerned with promoting quality patient care through the polit­ical process.

WSNA-PAC endorses in many statewide races but does not endorse for Federal Elections such as Congres­sional or Presi­den­tial races. In this year’s elections, WSNA-PAC will be focused on the following races:

  • Governor
  • State Treasurer
  • Attorney General
  • State Legis­la­ture

WSNA-PAC takes many factors into account prior to endorsing a candi­date, including but not limited to:

  • Returned WSNA-PAC questionnaire
  • Inter­view with WSNA-PAC Board
  • Voting record on WSNA priority issues, if incumbent

No WSNA dues money is used for candi­date contri­bu­tions, and contri­bu­tions to the WSNA-PAC are volun­tary. In order for us to be of assis­tance, in addition to lending our name to candi­dates that we know will support us, we’d like to help them finan­cially. We cannot do so without your help. Please consider giving to the WSNA-PAC fund today to increase our leverage and give the candi­dates the help that they need to win. Visit wsna​.org/​PAC/donate.
