Washington Gov. Jay Inslee to announce run for 3rd term

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who has ended his climate change-focused 2020 presidential bid, is set to announce Thursday that he'll seek a third term as governor.

Two people close to Inslee told The Associated Press that Inslee planned to make the announcement in an email to supporters. The two spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the announcement publicly.

Inslee, who made fighting climate change the central theme of his presidential campaign, announced Wednesday night that he was ending his campaign after nearly six months.

Inslee said that he was confident that Democrats would select a nominee who would champion climate change issues but that it had become clear that he wouldn't be the person selected. Inslee said he was not endorsing anyone but would support whoever is the nominee.

1. I'll vote for him again. So proud that he's our governor.

I attended his inauguration ball in 2013. Didn't get to meet him, though. Maybe next time...

2. Things feel so out of control on a national level, but having Inslee as a governor provides a sense

of leadership at a state level that is logical, progressive, inclusive, etc.

I look forward to voting for him again.

3. I am guessing this means he doesn't want a cabinet post.

It would be bad to ask the people for another four year term and then if he wins say sorry I got a better offer.

4. Fellow Washingtonian here...

We are certainly fortunate with our state and federal delegation in this state! Gov. Inslee and 2 Dem. women Senators! Also Ferguson at AG.

And in my conservative eastern Washington district, we finally have a great Dem. Rep. - Dr. Kim Schrier! They combined us with Issaquah, for some reason...

7. He's been a GREAT governor for Washington.

He would have been a great president of the United States. He knows everything that needs to be done and how to get it done. He is truly a leader and a public servant of the highest order. Remember those?

I anticipate that he will continue to do great things for the state of Washington. When this country finally tires of the national "reality" clown show, maybe he can come back again.
