Forget Rossi. WA Democratic Gubernatorial Primary?
That’s right. Chris Gregoire you’re not the only Democrat running for Governor. Enter former mayor of Kent James White, who has raised over $3 grand to Gregoire’s $4 million to challenge her for the democratic seat.

This is the same James Kent who, in 2001, allegedly solicited
contributions from City of Kent employees for his reelection as mayor.

Regardless of these allegations, it is clear that the Gubernatorial race is heating up. Forget Gregoire vs Rossi, Gregoire vs White is the battle that holds some real meat.
