District 12 Senate
Hawkins, Wyss battle for 12th District senate seat Read the full report | Click here
NCW — A two-term state rep and an ag company exec go head-to-head for the 12th District’s senate seat in the Nov. 8 general election.
The battle between Rep. Brad Hawkins and opponent Jon Wyss, both Republicans, is considered to be one of the region’s most hotly contested races. Hawkins out-polled Wyss by 2-to-1 in the August primary, claiming victory even in Okanogan County, where Wyss resides. But since the primary, Wyss has gained key endorsements from Republican leaders, including the 12th District’s retiring Sen. Linda Evans Parlette and seatmate Rep. Cary Condotta.
