Rob McKenna has a proven track record and achievements that have been recognized statewide and nationally. His biography and work as Washington’s attorney general are very impressive. He has reached out to both Democrats and Republicans to develop real solutions that both parties support.

McKenna is also the immediate past president of the National Association of Attorneys General, proving himself trustworthy by his fellow AGs. In addition, he’s argued and won cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. He is a topnotch professional all around.

There are many problems with the current administration that need thoughtful solutions: deficits, school funding, roads, traffic, high unemployment, etc. As a veteran, I am concerned about our young men and women when they return from the wars with health issues, and needing jobs when they leave the military.

As an Army brat, McKenna is familiar with military life and the sacrifices that families have to make. His professional state credentials plus his knowledge of the military have given him a unique ability to understand all these issues and develop specific plans to address each. The details are at RobMcKenna.org.

McKenna has the talent to provide reasonable solutions to our tough issues with both parties participating. He also has the values important to me: honesty, dependability, ethical behavior and love of Washington state. He has the potential to be the greatest governor this state has ever had.
