Elected U.S. Senator

Dan Evans

The 1983 United States Senate special election in Washington, was a special election to fill the seat which had been held by longtime Senator Henry Jackson, who unexpectedly died on September 1.[1] Three-term former governor Dan Evans was appointed by Governor John Spellman on September 8,[2][3] and he won the special election over congressman Mike Lowry on November 8.[4] Jackson had won a sixth term the previous year, so more than five years remained in the term.

The legislature ordered a primary election on October 11;[5] it featured 33 candidates (19 Democrats, 13 Republicans, and one Socialist Labor),[6][7] setting the modern record for number of candidates in a Washington U.S. Senate election.[8] As of 2020, this is the last time King County voted for a Republican Senate candidate.
