Rep. Jay Inslee Resigns

Rep. Jay Inslee, a Democrat from Washington state, is expected to resign from Congress to focus on his campaign for governor, according to the National Journal. Inslee’s bid has been reportedly hindered by his time in Washington, D.C. He is running against Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna to replace Gov. Christine Gregoire. Washington hasn’t had a Republican governor since 1980, but McKenna has run an impressive campaign so far.
