Inslee grounded more in reality

I saw the debate in Spokane via TVW and got a very favorable impression of Jay Inslee. He has a plan for economic growth that is paid for and flexible and he’s not willing to promise a lot of stuff that he can’t be sure he will deliver. Rob McKenna acted much more like a typical politician, promising billions from somewhere for education and naming a half dozen expensive road projects he favors but coming up with no way to fund them.

Washington needs a leader who will get results by making decisions and plans based on facts and evidence, rather than ideological mythology. A prosperous and sustainable future is possible, but only if we build it ourselves. Jay Inslee is the right choice.
