Jay Inslee: Can a climate change crusader become president?
Five things that caught our eye in Jay Inslee’s updated presidential campaign finance reports.
1. Washington’s two living former Democratic governors (Gregoire, Locke) aren’t listed as donors. But Inslee did get a cool $2,500 from Norm Dicks, $2,000 from People for Derek Kilmer and $1,000 from Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.
3. He’s collected just over $4,000 from people with last name “Inslee,” including $1,093.90 from the one he shares a bed with. (When he’s in town.)
4. He’s reimbursed Washington State Patrol $9,085.41 for his security detail. (Who says he’s oblivious to the extra $3.5 million cost to taxpayers? )
5. He’s received $150 from Bernie. (Bernie Schmidt, that is ... a sustainable building systems engineer from Denver.)
