Here are the incumbents who could be displaced by redistricting

Both Democrats and Republicans say their new redistricting maps would force more than a dozen members of the opposite party to either move or run in a new district.

(Here’s the list of those displaced by the old maps.)

Keep in mind these are negotiating postures, and many of these incumbents will be safe once the horse trading ends.

DEMOCRATS’ MAP

Displaces Democratic Rep. Ruth Kagi plus at least 13 Republicans:

  • Sen. Mike Baumgartner, from the 6th to the 3rd.
  • Sen. Joe Fain, from the 47th to the 33rd.
  • Sen. Mark Schoesler, from the 9th to the 16th.
  • Sen. Val Stevens, from the 39th to the 10th.
  • Sen. Dan Swecker, who said he may not run again, from the 20th to the 35th.
  • Rep. Gary Alexander, from the 20th to the 2nd.
  • Rep. Vincent Buys, from the 42nd to the 39th.
  • Rep. Susan Fagan, from the 9th to the 16th.
  • Rep. Paul Harris, from the 17th to the 49th.
  • Rep. Norm Johnson, from the 14th to the 15th.
  • Rep. Ed Orcutt, from the 18th to the 20th.
  • Rep. Ann Rivers, from the 18th to the 20th.
  • Rep. Joe Schmick, from the 9th to the 16th.

REPUBLICANS’ MAP

Bumps Orcutt to the 19th and displaces at least 13 Democrats:

  • Rep. Brian Blake, from the 19th to the 24th.
  • Sen. Tracey Eide, from the 30th to the 33rd.
  • Rep. Marko Liias, who’s leaving to run for Congress, from the 21st to the 32nd.
  • Rep. Fred Finn, who’s not seeking another term, from the 35th to the 22nd.
  • Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon, from the 34th to the 33rd.
  • Rep. Roger Goodman, who’s leaving to run for Congress, from the 45th to the 48th.
  • Rep. Bob Hasegawa, from the 11th to the 37th.
  • Sen. Brian Hatfield, from the 19th to the 20th.
  • Rep. Zack Hudgins, from the 11th to the 37th.
  • Rep. Troy Kelley, from the 28th to the 27th.
  • Rep. Marcie Maxwell, from the 41st to the 11th.
  • Rep. Luis Moscoso, from the 1st to the 21st.
  • Sen. Paull Shin, from the 21st to the 32nd.

Both parties say they are also bumping Rep. Hans Zeiger, but he’s likely safe since he recently moved from Edgewood to South Hill.
