Jay Inslee was in the middle of a press conference at an alternative energy car manufacturer in Kent when the ruling on the R-74 ballot title came down, and Eli called in with Inslee's immediate response:
"It's very disappointing that it took a court to force our attorney general to follow the law—and to stop him, frankly, from playing politics on this matter."
Inslee says he's happy for people to have an opportunity to vote on this issue, but that he found it "gratifying" to have the AG's troublesome phrasing of the ballot title struck down.
In Eli's opinion, Inslee's stance on gay marriage provides one of the sharpest contrasts he's drawn to date between himself and Rob McKenna. I'd have to agree.
