For majority, McKenna a risk

Eight percent of us think Congress is doing a good job. Perhaps that coincides with the percent of Americans who own Congress. The political credo of those elected seems to be that they shouldn't be held to the promises they made to get elected. In other words, most will sell us out, and choose to work for those who bought them.
The Herald's endorsement of Rob McKenna for governor may be based on the promises he's made, but you can't predict what he'll do if elected. Was he concerned about the citizens of this state when he joined the challenge to Obamacare, or was he marching to the tune of those eight percent?
Has McKenna joined forces with the Koch brothers? Does he support the subversive efforts of ALEC? What are his views on the Republican Governors Association's effort to transfer state tax revenues to their wealthy controllers?
Please, tell us which candidates, for state and federal office, have or will sign President Grover Norquist's pledge?
When you cut the rattles off a rattlesnake, you can't call it a garter snake with prettier markings. Have you done so with McKenna? Why would he not become the next Chris Cristie, Scott Walker, John Kasich, Rick Scott, or one of the other Republican governors selling out their citizens? Corporations are not people, but some snakes are.
