Election Night Gregoire’s Speech
posted by August 19 at 19:08 PMon
As noted below, we missed the governor’s speech; fortunately, a source in the audience was taking good notes. This super-secret mystery source told us that he found Gregoire’s speech “overly defensive”; it focused almost entirely on her Republican opponent Dino Rossi (whom she referred to consistently as “my opponent”), accusing Rossi of handing her a massive budget deficit; passing a bed tax on senior citizens in nursing homes (which he later called a “fee”); and voting against funding for education.
The fundraiser was aimed at young professionals, who paid $50 a pop. We’re heading down to the Northwest African American Museum to see her reprise her Spitfire speech there in a few minutes.
