Analysis: Inslee steps onto crowded presidential debate stage next week

Jun 18, 2019

Gov. Jay Inslee is preparing for his first Democratic presidential debate, which will be held over two nights next week in Miami.

Inslee is one of 10 candidates who will be on stage the first night, Wednesday, June 26. Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick talked with Olympia correspondent Austin Jenkins about the debate and the latest on Inslee's presidential campaign.

His big competitor that night, Jenkins says: U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren. The New York Times says it's her night to lose. Night No. 2 will feature a higher profile set of candidates, including former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Kamala Harris.

Listen to the full conversation above to hear Jenkins' predictions for hot topics, as well as what's to come if Inslee wants to keep meeting the threshold for future debates.
