Morales finished first among six candidates in District 2’s primary, garnering 50% of the vote. Her campaign has raised $168,399 from 2,265 donors, with $124,925 sourced from taxpayer-funded democracy vouchers.
She’s endorsed by groups such as the union for Seattle Public School teachers and Seattle’s Sierra Club Chapter and politicians such as U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Seattle Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda.
In an opening statement Tuesday night, she said she was “raised by strong women” to work for economic justice. “The time for incrementalism” on taxing large businesses and building affordable housing “is over,” Morales added.
