Five arguments for holding a Democratic presidential debate in Tacoma – not Seattle, where the state party has requested one to be scheduled.
2. Michelle Obama made her only Washington book tour stop at the T-Dome in March. So clearly the 253 is the the new beating heart of the Northwest progressive scene.
3. “Kamala in Tacoma” has a beat and you can dance to it. “Swalwell in Seattle” not so much.
4. Tacoma is closer to Olympia, so Jay Inslee has more time to zip home, get clean underwear, water houseplants and check the mail.
5. Three words: McMenamins Elk Temple. Enough said.
