Inslee and McKenna Head to November Showdown

Jay Inslee (D) and Rob McKenna (R) easily advanced to the general election in yesterday's blanket gubernatorial primary in Washington, "setting up what promises to be one of the top gubernatorial contests in the country," the Seattle Times reports.

Inslee led in the vote count with about 47% to McKenna's 43%. Both men easily outpaced seven lesser-known rivals.

First Read notes the blanket primary "isn't the best way to judge what will happen in November, because the electorates are different. But still, Democrats have to feel good about last night's result in Washington."
