Washington Post reports that Washington governor Jay Inslee is running for the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nomination.
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee on Friday became the latest Democrat to launch a 2020 presidential bid, asserting in a video that he is the only candidate who will make combating climate change the nation’s top priority.
“We’re the first generation to feel the sting of climate change, and we’re the last who can do something about it,” Inslee says in the video. “We went to the moon, and created technologies that have changed the world. Our country’s next mission must be to rise up to the most urgent challenge of our time — defeating climate change.”
