From LP.org, August 18th, 2016:

The Washington Libertarian Party had a candidate for statewide office and 10 legislative candidates advance from the top-two primary on August 2, who will be on the general election ballot in November.

    The Washington state Libertarian Party does a great job of recruiting lots of candidates. That is especially impressive given the rather high filing fee. But all of the Libertarians who advanced to the general election in the top-two August 2016 primary were running in races with only two candidates on the primary ballot. So it isn’t very surprising that they all came in 2nd; it would have been impossible for them not to place 2nd (or first, although that didn’t happen) barring a strong write-in candidate.
