The day before Election Day, Tim Eyman said he was praying for a red wave. It never came.

Eyman had fan­ta­sized in mid-2022 about vot­ers elect­ing a Repub­li­can-con­trolled Leg­is­la­ture that would take on Gov­er­nor Jay Inslee and poten­tial­ly adopt a slew of right wing ini­tia­tives intro­duced by his friend Bri­an Hey­wood. But not only did Repub­li­cans fail to cap­ture con­trol of the Leg­is­la­ture, they lost seats to the Democrats.
