Lots of news to catch up on:
- A new Survey USA/KING5 poll shows McKenna ahead of Inslee, 44 to 38. What's really interesting about the survey? This: "McKenna’s early lead can be attributed in part to his strength in the Puget Sound area. In King, Pierce and Snohomish counties, he’s even with Inslee at 41% each, which is significant for a Republican candidate." It's early, but details like that suggest this race is not going to be cakewalk for Inslee, something that McKenna backers have long argued.
- Check out Nansen Malin's post on Cantwell pushing the EPA to shut down the Pebble Mine project in Alaska. Methinks this is going to be a contentious issue.
- There's lots of coverage of this Elway poll re: the liquor initiative.
- Gov. Gregoire had a car accident. No injuries. If that kind of thing interests you, there are pictures here. [intro]
