The Seattle Hotel Association made endorsements in four races this election cycle. Bruce Harrell for Seattle Mayor, Ann Davison for Seattle City Attorney, Sara Nelson for Seattle City Council Position 9, and Dow Constantine for King County Executive.

As of the 4 p.m., Nov. 3 results update, every endorsed candidate holds a lead. We do expect these margins to tighten as later votes tend to lean in favor of more progressive candidates, but these initial numbers are very promising. We will continue to monitor the updates and keep you informed over the coming days.
