KIRO's Essex Porter, chasing Rob McKenna down the back stairs.
On Friday, in response to the shooting in Colorado, KIRO TV's Essex Porter tried to ask Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna about gun control at a McKenna campaign event—only to have McKenna duck down some back stairs to avoid Porter's questions. (Click the link for full video.)
Porter responded by running after McKenna: down the back stairs, to McKenna's waiting car, campaign aides trying to block him all the while.
"I'm not prepared for this," McKenna told Porter.
Which is odd, considering that McKenna's running as the guy with deeper knowledge of important issues. KIRO called McKenna's response "interesting" and Porter pointed out that the gun show loophole, which Porter wanted to ask McKenna about, is "not a new issue" for McKenna.
