I believe it is the melting ice caps, the extended droughts, and the snow falling in Hawaii that is forcing the agenda. A sinking boat knows no political party.

Jay Inslee: Washington governor to run on climate change.

 

Mr Inslee, 68, will make climate change his number one issue, calling it "the most urgent challenge of our time" in his first campaign video. He is the first governor to throw his hat into the ring, joining 12 other Democrats, including six senators. The two-term governor has been a fierce critic of President Donald Trump.  "I'm running for president because I am the only candidate who will make defeating climate change our nation's number one priority," Mr Inslee says in the video, released on Friday.


Mr Inslee's mid-term elections campaign ran on the platform of creating new energy jobs - his 2020 campaign video echoed the same, tying "defeating climate change" with transforming the economy.

 

Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders are among other declared contenders for the Democratic primary in 2020, the first time more than one woman has competed.

 

Jay Inslee is someone who in the past would be a naturally formidable presidential candidate. He's a veteran politician with the kind of executive experience that comes from being a governor of a mid-sized state.  At a small session at the liberal Netroots Nation conference last August, the 68-year-old Inslee displayed a low-key confidence and command of the issues, with the kind of self-deprecating wit that can be effective disarming critics. He won't light up a stage like Senator Cory Booker or potential candidate Beto O'Rourke, but he's a comfortable public speaker.

 

This isn't your father's Democratic Party, of course, and with a diverse range of candidates already in the race, Mr Inslee will be pressed to find breathing room for his campaign.  His answer is to fashion himself as the environmental candidate. With the Green New Deal getting traction among progressives, Mr Inslee is touting his work addressing climate change in Washington state. He's launching his presidential bid at a solar panel factory whose success he attributes to his policies as governor.

 

If Mr Inslee gets the attention of Democratic voters with his environmental pitch, he can then pivot to talking about his efforts to fight the Trump administration's immigration policies, expand healthcare in his state, raise the minimum wage, enact paid family medical leave, end capital punishment and pardon Washington residents previously convicted of now-legalised marijuana drug offences.  It's a record of progressive accomplishment that the half-dozen senators already in the race, having toiled in the minority since 2014, can't match.


Jay Inslee is a fifth-generation Washingtonian, born and raised in Seattle.  He is a former prosecutor and former congressman who represented the state of Washington in the House of Representatives for several terms in the 1990s.  His father was a high school science teacher who helped spark his love of nature.  Mr Inslee won the governorship in 2012, ousting the incumbent Republican. He took the seat after winning only eight liberal counties out of the state's 39, losing the rural vote to his conservative opponent, according to the New York Times.  He was the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association in 2018, helping with campaigning efforts across the country.  In addition to his environmental efforts, Mr Inslee has pushed for gun control, net neutrality, family leave and upping minimum wage in his state. 

 

In December, he compared his presidential hopes with those of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, saying both former presidents were "unknown governors of small states" before winning the presidency, the Seattle Times reported.

 


I take it you are voting for him?  Hence the article?


No, but I want you to vote for him in the primary.

 


Got it.  We shall overcome.  Peace.

Shoot both the true believers and the hidden agenda neoMarxists and let God sort them out.

A definate contender. Wonder if this will cause Joe Biden to get in the race? So far, he's Joe's only serious opposition for the nomination, and he's 10 years younger (or there 'bouts).

Sure looks to me like the climate nut is currently in the White House, and the Climate Supporter just threw his hat in the ring for the Presidency. 

The trump supporters have no policies. They have thrown their support to trump, and trump has nothing...that’s reality!
