WA Governor Debate In Yakima
YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) — Republican Rob McKenna and Democrat Jay Inslee sparred over taxes, immigration and health insurance yesterday in the third debate of their race for governor. Recent polls show Inslee has opened a slight lead in this Democratic-leaning state. The debate at the Yakima Convention Center showed a sharp difference between the candidates over a federal plan to expand Medicaid to cover more people without medical insurance. McKenna is opposed, while Inslee favors it.
