Washington Supreme Court, Position 8 - incumbent Steve Gonzalez is challenged by Nathan Choi. The incumbent has been rated 'extremely well qualified' by the King County Bar Association and has bi-partisan support and endorsements. According to the Spokesman Review, Choi was sued this year for 2017 PDC violations when he ran for Court of Appeals, and is having PDC and other issues with his campaign this year, which may explain his lack of campaign activity.
The additional seats in the Washington courts are uncontested.
