U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee to run for Washington governor
Advisers to U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee say he will launch his campaign for Washington governor next week.
Inslee's political team said in a statement late Thursday that he would officially announce his candidacy on Monday morning in Seattle, followed by a second event south of Yakima. He will make additional campaign stops in Tacoma, Vancouver and Spokane on Tuesday.
Inslee has represented Washington's 1st Congressional District for more than a decade, covering northern suburbs of Seattle. He's been a leader in Congress on battling climate change and promoting clean-energy alternatives.
Attorney General Rob McKenna recently declared his candidacy for the Republican nomination.
