Overview
Washington had gone Democratic for the past three elections, but the Nader factor created a degree of uncertainty. The Bush campaign invested significant resources; Gore-Lieberman nonetheless ended up winning the state with a plurality of 138,788 votes (5.58 percentage points).  Gore carried 11 counties to 28 for Bush.  Washington was the scene of one of the most closely fought U.S. Senate races as Maria Cantwell (D) defeated incumbent Slade Gorton (R) with a plurality of just 2,229 votes (0.09 percentage points).  Voters also faced seven ballot measures. 
General Election Activity

State Primary: Sept. 19, 2000
Primary Date:  Tuesday, February 29, 2000
Caucuses:  Democratic and Republican precinct caucuses on Tuesday, March 7, 2000 
Statute: Chapter 29:19 RCW Presidential Primary     Press Release
Washington state has a blanket primary system.  On April 19, 1999 a 9-member committee made up of the Secretary of State, the chair and vice chair of the state's two major political parties, the majority and minority leaders of the Senate and the co-Speakers of the House of Representatives voted to hold the presidential primary on Feb. 29, 2000.  In the Feb. 29 presidential primary, voters had a choice of three separate ballots: Unaffiliated--listing all candidates; Democratic--listing only the candidates of the Democratic Party; and Republican--listing only the candidates of the Republican Party.  For Republicans, 12 of 37 delegates were allocated based on the Republican ballots in the Feb. 29 primary, and the remaining 25 delegates based on the caucuses.  For Democrats, the March 7 caucuses marked the start of the delegate selection process, but the primary assumed symbolic importance because Sen. Bill Bradley chose to make it a cornerstone of his challenge to Vice President Al Gore.  However, on primary day Sen. John McCain swamped Bradley among independent voters, finishing  a close second overall to Gov. George W. Bush, while Bradley finished fourth overall.
