Gov. Jay Inslee is heading east this week to campaign for the presidency. Olympia correspondent Austin Jenkins gave Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick an update on the governor’s bid, and what it could mean for Inslee now that billionaire Tom Steyer has entered the race.
“What’s notable is just how much time the governor is spending on the campaign trail,” Jenkins said. “If you want to run for president...you gotta get out there and press the flesh.”
Inslee is heading to the East Coast, with stops in New York and Washington, D.C., before heading back to Iowa.
