SEATTLE (AP) — Washington’s candidates for governor are preparing to meet in their highest-profile debate.
Democrat Jay Inslee and Republican Rob McKenna will discuss the issues Thursday night in Seattle. The event will begin at 9 p.m., shortly after the conclusion of the vice presidential debate.
The latest meeting of the candidates will air live on five Seattle-area television stations, along with several other stations in the region. A final debate will be held on October 16.
Polls indicate that the race remains competitive, with an Elway Poll in September showing the candidates running about even.
