Washington 10th Congressional District Candidate Debate slated for July 1st

On Wednesday, July 1, Washington State Wire and The Nature Conservancy in Washington will host virtual debate between six candidates for the 10th Congressional District seat in the House of Representatives.

The event is free and open to the public – residence in the 10th District is not required, but advance registration is.

The debate will follow a nonpartisan and impartial format, with candidates given equal time to respond to a set of screened questions on climate change, environmental policy priories, economic policy, and social justice. It will run from 7:00-8:30 PST.

The six candidates participating are: Kristine Reeves, Marilyn Strickland, Beth Doglio, Joshua Collins, Phil Gardner, and Nancy Slotnick.

The candidates above were selected to participate based on their fundraising totals reported in the most recent FEC filings. Read more about the selection process here.

Washington’s 10th Congressional District covers the shores of South Puget Sound and includes portions of Thurston, Pierce and Mason Counties. Stretching from Capitol Forest to the foothills of Mt. Rainier and the Puyallup River, the district includes Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the city of Olympia, part of Tacoma, suburbs and rural communities such as Yelm and Shelton.

The candidate who fills this open seat could have a significant impact beyond the borders of the district as a key member of Washington state’s 12-member Congressional delegation.

Again, advance registration is required. Register for the event and submit a question to ask the candidates here. (Please note that time will not allow for all submitted questions to be asked.)

We look forward to an informative discussion between the candidates.


The Nature Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) public charity communicating about important policies that impact environmental conservation. The purpose of this event is to provide a non-partisan, public forum for candidates to share positions and priorities about issues important to conservation, the environment, and climate. TNC cannot and does not take positions on candidates for public office.
