Steves Might Ask for Your Vote in 2012July 30th, 2009 by Steven Gardner
Back in December when the rumors that U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee, D-Bainbridge Island, might get a cabinet post were beginning to fade, we nonetheless mentioned that one person supposedly interested in replacing him was renowned traveler Rick Steves of Edmonds.
The rumors are back.
This time horsesass.org is speculating that Inslee wants to run for governor in 2012.
Everybody knows that Democratic U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee (WA-01) has long had his eye on the governor’s mansion, and is widely expected to give up his House seat to run for our state’s top office in 2012.
I never got an answer from Steves about the rumors, but horsesass did. Well, it’s from a publicist, so that’s only kind of a response.
This, of course, presumes Gov. Chris Gregoire doesn’t seek another term, which might not be a valid presumption.
