To Work

Seeing the first gubernatorial poll where Inslee isn’t behind is certainly heartening news. I don’t know if it’s an outlier at this point or if the race has tightened up recently. In any event, for the thousandth time, I’m going to point out that we’re not simply passive observers.

As people who’ve been reading this blog for a while know, I’m a big proponent of getting out and doing what you can for candidates. For citizens volunteering. Knocking on doors and having conversations will be more persuasive than whatever ads get TiVoed passed or mailings that go straight into the recycle bin. And calling people reminding them to vote will push the numbers up.

So, I know I’ll volunteer throughout the campaign. And I hope some of you do the same.

    Carl, I agree, but when is Inslee going to grow a pair and start defining McKenna as the tea-bag loving, anti-health care, anti-gay, anti-union, Scott Walker wannabe right wing nut job that he is???

    For some reason Inslee seems intent to be running on aspirational messages, but what he needs to do is go negative on McKenna’s ass and start educating the public as to just how out of touch McKenna’s positions truly are.

    This is the strategy that propelled Dow Constantine to the front of a crowded King County Executive primary Democratic field and allowed him to beat Susan Hutchison in the general; and it’s the only way Inslee is going to beat McKenna.
