Freedom Socialist Party Will Try to Put U.S. Senate Candidate on 2018 Washington State Ballot

Ballot Access News

The Freedom Socialist Party almost never tries to place candidates for partisan office on the ballot in any state. But it will work to put its nominee for U.S. Senate in Washington state, Steve Hoffman, on the 2018 primary ballot. Hoffman is free to get on the ballot without any petition if he pays a $1,740 filing fee, but instead the party will try to use the petition in lieu of the filing fee.
Because Washington is a top-two state, it is virtually certain that Hoffman will not appear on the November ballot, because the incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator, Maria Cantwell, and some Republican, will place first and second in the August primary.
