ELECTION: McKenna has strongly supported veterans

Rob McKenna is, by word and deed, a strong supporter of veterans and their families. He is the son of a career Army warrant officer, and his positions as a candidate reflect unqualified support.

Jay Inslee, on the other hand, provides a far different perspective. In October 2011, prior to Inslee’s resignation from Congress, there were 16 bills in Congress that would benefit veterans and their families. Inslee had not signed on as a co-sponsor or supporter of one of those bills!

The troubling issue is not the content or scope of a specific bill, rather it is the pattern of Inslee not supporting any of these measures. In light of such a failure of support, what can be expected in the future?

McKenna is the true supporter of veterans and by far the best choice for governor.
