Which gubernatorial candidates joined in the parade? It was hard to tell in the beginning, since both of their colors are blue. Both groups had blue t-shirts and banners.
Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna was not able to attend the parade. But while he was away attending an annual attorney general conference, his followers came in big numbers
Only Jay Inslee, a Democrat, came with his supporters.
Inslee was in a good mood. Last week, the Asian Weekly did a story on McKenna’s aide who resigned from the campaign due to the backlash from her racist remarks.
When Inslee approached the SYLP group to shake hands, I asked him about his thoughts regarding the ordeal.
“It’s unfortunate,” he said, with a really big smile. (end)
