SD 26 Holly Mitchell website WIN

As are all primary elections for state legislative offices under current law, the special primary elections on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 were "top-two" open primaries, in which all candidates regardless of party are on the same ballot. Because State Senator Mitchell received a majority of the votes (at least 50% + 1) in her contest, she won outright, and no special general election was needed in SD 26.

About CLCV's Endorsements

Candidates receive CLCV’s endorsement the old-fashioned way: They earn it. Before each election, we conduct field research to determine candidates’ environmental records. Then we send them questionnaires, testing their views on key issues. Finally, the candidates are interviewed by a panel of CLCV Board members, staff, and local environmentalists.

Note that local league endorsements (available here) are made independently of CLCV.
