McKenna, Inslee meeting for high-profile debate

Washington’s candidates for governor are preparing to meet in their highest-profile debate.

Democrat Jay Inslee and Republican Rob McKenna will discuss the issues tonight in Seattle. The event will begin at 9 p.m., shortly after the conclusion of the vice presidential debate.

The latest meeting of the candidates will air live on five Seattle-area television stations, along with several other stations in the region. A final debate will be held on Oct. 16.

Polls indicate that the race remains competitive, with an Elway Poll in September showing the candidates running about even.
