Interview with James Watkins (R cand, WA-1)

Steve Beren interviewed James Watkins (Republican Candidate, WA-1), who is running against incumbent Jay Inslee (D). The interview is at:

It’s a nice overview of James’s positions with an emphasis on what makes him a strong challenger.

Here’s an encouraging excerpt: 

While the 1st CD went strongly for Obama (62%) on election day 2008, on that same day Attorney General Rob McKenna carried the district with 61% of the vote. That shows the potential for a strong candidate such as Watkins to replace Jay Inslee this year.

McKenna, by the way, is one of the endorsers of the Watkins campaign, and the campaign website features a YouTube video by McKenna regarding his endorsement. http://bit.ly/buSg0T
