The 32nd Legislative District Democrats have given early endorsements to incumbent Congressman Jim McDermott, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee, incumbent State Reps. Ruth Kagi and Cindy Ryu, and Democratic secretary-of-state candidate Kathleen Drew. 

District Democratic Chairwoman Carin Chase announced the endorsements April 11.

Chase says that she expects more endorsements in early May.

The District includes Shoreline, part of northwest Seattle, Lynnwood, Woodway, south Edmonds and unincorporated areas of southwest Snohomish County.

Kagi will be seeking her eighth two-year term and Ryu her second term in the State House of Representatives. Neither has an announced opponent. 

McDermott will seek his 13th two-year term in the U.S. House of Representatives. Two fellow Democrats -- Andrew Hughes and Donovan Rivers – have registered an intent to run for the position.

Inslee has given up his seat in Congress to run for governor.

Drew, a former legislator from Issaquah and policy analyst for Gov. Christine Gregoire, is one of several candidates seeking to replace retiring Secretary of State Sam Reed. She now serves as a policy adviser at the state Department of Enterprise Services — an agency responsible for payroll and personnel, and managing contracts, real estate and supplies.
