Yesterday I noted that Republican candidate for governor Rob McKenna wants more debates. "We need more of these," he said at his debate with Democratic candidate Jay Inslee in Vancouver on Wednesday. "It's such a great opportunity."
Which is weird, because McKenna's campaign turned down multiple additional opportunities to debate Inslee before the November election. I mentioned two in yesterday's post. Today Matt Landers, spokesman for the Greater Seattle Business Association, adds one more:
Regarding yesterday’s Slog post, if Rob McKenna is looking for another debate or forum, perhaps he’d like to reconsider his decline of the Candidate Forum being sponsored by the Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA), this region’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce. GSBA is holding its annual Candidate Forum on September 14 and invited Rob McKenna, offering a number of different dates, to be a participant in our Forum; however his staff replied that he would be out of town and unavailable on each of the suggested dates.
