Ten minutes before the show ended, a graphic popped up on the screen saying Jay Inslee D 627,164 55% Rob McKenna R 513,134 45% Very similar to the thing that happened in Phoenix 4 days ago, but this time for the governor of WA. I have it recorded but do not know how to transfer it to my computer.

    Dear Mr. Chairman: On Thursday June 28, 2012 the Supreme Court of the United States upheld the monstrous legislation known as “Obamacare.” As I am sure you are aware, the Washington State Attorney General and a Republican candidate for Washington State Governor, Rob McKenna, has said that he opposes a repeal of any portion of the Affordable Care Act and is ready to implement it if elected Governor of Washington. This statement by a Republican candidate is both shocking and offensive. I had the honor and privilege of representing my congressional district as delegate to the 2012 WSRP Convention. As...

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Attorney General Rob McKenna is preparing to officially launch a campaign for governor. A Republican familiar with the McKenna's plans said Tuesday that he will formally begin his 2012 campaign during an event Wednesday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to pre-empt McKenna's announcement. Washington state hasn't had a Republican governor since John Spellman left office in 1985. McKenna was first elected attorney general in 2004 after serving several years on the King County council. He is president-elect of the National Association of Attorneys General. Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire said Monday...

    Private businesses have customers that do business with them by choice. The customer indirectly, yet ultimately, pays those wages and benefits to the workers. They have the freedom of choice as to whether they want to give their money to ABC Company or XYZ Company for whatever services or products they offer. If the prices are too high, due to labor costs, they have the freedom to look elsewhere. Governments take money from their "customers" (taxpayers) by force. The only alternative are fines or imprisonment...

    Quietly, Democratic lawmakers have already moved to make it harder for Attorney General Rob McKenna to spend money suing the federal government over health care. The reaction to the Republican lawman joining a 13-state attack on President Obama's health care bill has come swiftly. Not only are Democrats considering a budget proviso blocking the lawsuit, but McKenna already faces new controls on his spending. Office of Financial Management Director Victor Moore sent a letter Tuesday revoking McKenna's blanket exemption to a freeze on state contracts. The exemption, which Moore had granted days earlier, allowed the attorney general's office to pay...

    Until this Summer Andy McKenna was the Chairman of the Illinois GOP. He presided over a party that saw every single state wide office lost to it. He presided over a party that tried as hard as it could to make sure that Illinois' Republican voters would be barred from voting their own leaders into place (even though Democrat voters do elect their leaders). McKenna presided over a GOP that seemed little more than a junior partner to the corruption plagued Democrats. …and now McKena's running for governor. And guess what? House Republican leader Tom Cross is backing McKenna. Yep,...

The "event report" — obtained Tuesday by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution — describes the altercation as an assault on a police officer. The officer involved in the incident, identified as Paul McKenna, filed the report with his supervisors immediately after the incident occurred at 8:55 a.m. March 29. The report for the first time provides specific details of what happened when McKenna tried to stop McKinney from going...

Mr. McKenna, who resigned the day after the Jan. 23 election and is being replaced by former Conservative finance minister Michael Wilson, said Canadians want their government to be assertive of Canadian interests without being anti-American.

    A black cloud was lifted off Canadian-American relations yesterday: Frank McKenna, anti-American Canadian ambassador to the United States announced his resignation. McKenna, in the diplomatic post for less than a year, was a harsh critic of the U.S. ever since his arrival in Washington. One month into the job, he fired off a letter to Newt Gingrich for his reference on Hannity & Colmes regarding terrorists crossing over the border from Canada into the U.S. Only last October, McKenna stunned a Toronto audience when he called the U.S. government "dysfunctional".

    WASHINGTON (CP) - The U.S. administration has told Canadian Ambassador Frank McKenna it strongly disagrees with Prime Minister Paul Martin's recent negative remarks regarding American policy on climate change, U.S. officials said Friday. The disapproval was voiced at a meeting Thursday between McKenna and Jim Connaughton, the White House's environmental guru, the officials said. But both Connaughton's office and the Canadian Embassy denied reports that McKenna was summoned to the White House for a tongue-lashing over the Martin comments. Absolutely not, said Michele St. Martin, spokeswoman for the Council on Environmental Quality headed by Connaughton, calling it a routine get-together...

McKenna, who’s already sent messages to 6,000 expatriates, intends to get in touch with 100,000 of them by week’s end. The rookie ambassador is pressing the "Canadian diaspora" to arm themselves with facts, to debate Americans and to get out and lobby when Washington makes decisions that can hurt Canadians,...

    A state Senate committee yesterday wrongly backed Chairman Jim Kastama's attempt to slam shut a critical door to the public's business. Kastama's disastrous amendment makes a bad bill worse, creating all kinds of new opportunity for government agencies to keep their actions from the public eye. The amendment essentially codifies last year's misguided state Supreme Court ruling that permits school boards, city councils and public commissions to invoke attorney-client privilege almost willy-nilly. If a House committee doesn't pass a more public-friendly bill by today's deadline, the only hope is to drastically amend the Senate bill on the floor — or...
