Note About (the above) Election Results

Due to the lack of a Medicare for All staff person to do the work, the following information is not possible for me to provide:

  • Green Party candidates.
  • Percentage of votes cast for the primary races, which are more of a challenge to obtain than the general election results.

*** = This loss was not counted as part of the win/loss totals.

***** = The challenger is a strong single-payer supporter.
