Washington Governor Jay Inslee joins Democratic presidential field

  • Washington state Governor Jay Inslee repping the planet at the 2017 March for Science in Seattle WA

"We can pioneer the industries of the future, we can create millions of good paying jobs and build the clean energy economy of the future", said Inslee.

"I've been pleased by what I've been hearing across the country", the 68-year-old Democrat said last Sunday on CBS's Face The Nation "That people do want a president that will act on a real emergency, which is climate change".

Although lesser known on the national stage, Inslee has sought to cultivate an image as a warrior against climate change and hired multiple advisers who worked for Tom Steyer, the Democratic billionaire who recently ruled out a presidential run of his own.

The two-term governor, who previously served seven terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, enters a crowded field of candidates, many of whom have better name recognition and more buzz, and he hasn't featured prominently in Democratic primary polling to date. Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren; Hawaii Rep. Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper also are eyeing presidential campaigns.

"We're the first generation to feel the sting of climate change", Inslee said over footage of the burned-out rubble California's wildfires left behind a year ago. Former Vice President Joe Biden and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke also are expected to make highly anticipated 2020 announcements in the coming weeks.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee launched a longshot bid for the USA presidency on Friday with a vow to fight climate change and promote policies to make the country more prosperous and inclusive.

He promised significant investment in clean energy sources that reduce USA dependence on fossil fuels. Sherrod Brown of OH, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, are also considering bids for the Democratic nomination.

Inslee's speech echoed numerous themes written into the Green New Deal, a resolution introduced by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey in early February. The filibuster is seen by many Democrats as a likely impediment to enacting Green New Deal legislation.

The statistical analysis firm FiveThirtyEight noted that Inslee has a fairly liberal record in a field that includes many candidates who appear to be racing to the left politically.

Inslee grew up in the Seattle area, with his mother working as a sales clerk and his father as a biology teacher and basketball coach in public schools.

In an open-ended question, 24 percent of all adults queried named environmental issues and climate change among the top five priorities for the government to work on in 2019.

All six US Democratic senators who are vying for the nomination received a flawless score past year from the League of Conservation Voters when it came to voting on environmental issues, The Washington Post reported.

As the chair of the Democratic Governors Association previous year, Inslee traveled the country campaigning and raising money for his party's gubernatorial candidates during the 2018 midterm elections.
