YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) — The candidates for Washington governor, Republican Rob McKenna and Democrat Jay Inslee, meet for a debate Tuesday night in Yakima.
Polling indicates the two are locked in a close race to replace Democrat Chris Gregoire, who did not seek a third term.
If McKenna is elected he would be the first GOP governor in the state since 1980.
