RGA Statement on Washington Gubernatorial Primary

 Governor Bob McDonnell, chairman of the Republican Governors Association, issued the following statement on Attorney General Rob McKenna advancing from the primary to face Congressman Jay Inslee in the general election for governor:

“Since the beginning of his campaign, Rob McKenna has been laser-focused on winning the general election, and today’s results are a key step towards achieving that goal.  Now, Rob will be able to begin consolidating his support while continuing to reach out to independent voters who recognize that his ideas to strengthen the economy, increase the number of well-paying jobs and reform education are exactly what Washington needs.  Rob is strongly positioned to win in November.”
