Rob McKenna has been making his rounds with the outlandish claim that he won the first debate with candidate Jay Inslee for Governor of Washington.  The debate occurred in Spokane two weeks ago.  Maybe McKenna thought  it was a contest to be the most annoying, or the most elitist, or perhaps who could bash middle-class American’s the hardest.

To quote one audience member who was at the Jay Inslee vs. Rob McKenna debate, Rob McKenna was apparently “blaming homeowners for the financial crisis.”

He asked Inslee if he regrets his congressional votes to make it easier to obtain loans with poor credit.  Inslee explained that he actually had opposed financial industry deregulation back in the Clinton years.  Inslee went on to say that the Romney-McKenna view of life “is that we have problems because of homeowners, not Wall Street.  I have a fundamentally different view.”
Directly below is part of the Rob McKenna email where he claims he won the debate .
Debate Win!
Tuesday night was the first gubernatorial debate between Rob and his opponent Congressman Jay Inslee – and Rob showed that he is the candidate with better ideas about how to improve our state. Rob gave detailed ideas from his plan for a New Direction for Washington State, while Congressman Inslee offered little beyond the same failed policies and political talking points that the politics-as-usual crowd in Olympia loves.

Tuesday’s debate was further proof that Rob McKenna has the vision and experience to shake up the status quo and get our state moving forward again.
