Inslee ‘darn close’ to announcing governor run

Jerry Cornfield at the (Everett) Herald reports U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee, D-Bainbridge Island, sent out an invitation for a Sunday fundraiser in Mukilteo advising:

“We know it’s early in the cycle, but the Congressman is trying to put some funds in the bank early for his Congressional race and also if there is an opening to run for Governor”

Cornfield checked with the stat’s Public Disclosure Commission to see if what the invite said was enough to require Inslee to file as a candidate for governor. Cornfield said it was “darn close,” but not quite enough of an official announcement.

The “opening” for Inslee would come if Gov. Chris Gregoire decided not to run for a third term, which most are predicting won’t happen.
