Joe Biden has won Washington

Former Vice President Joe Biden won Washington, according to Decision Desk HQ.

Washington has voted for a Democrat in every presidential election since 1988, reliably serving as a Democratic stronghold. There are no major down-ballot races in the Senate or at the gubernatorial level, but Washington is home to competitive House races in the state’s 3rdand 8th congressional districts.

Washington is firmly in Democratic control, with Democrats holding both houses of the state legislature, governor, and nine out of 12 Congressional seats. Washington has 12 electoral votes and was not expected by analysts to be competitive.
