Washington governor race heating up

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- The race for Washington's next Governor is neck and neck. Republican Rob McKenna and Democrat Jay Inslee will hold their third debate tonight in Yakima.

Both candidates made their own stops during the day. Many people caught Inslee waving signs at the corner of 16th and Tieton. Mckenna visited with children and their parents at Ready by Five, a family literacy and early learning center.

One of the issues that you can expect to come up during tonight's debate is economic development. Both candidates say they will also address the issue of gang violence and public safety.

You can catch the debate streaming live from our website at 7PM.
