As Washington attorney general, Rob McKenna refused to defend Washington’s public lands. He was going to let Common School Trust lands be condemned, despite Public Lands Commissioner Peter Goldmark’s request to provide legal representation in appealing a lower court ruling.

The state had to sue McKenna to get him to defend the public lands of our state. He is the wrong guy to be our governor.
