McKenna makes campaign stop in Vancouver

first_img Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna rolled through Vancouver on Tuesday morning as part of a 29-stop campaign tour aimed at getting out the vote in the final days before the Nov. 6 election.“This voter turnout effort is absolutely crucial,” he said, encouraging his campaign volunteers to continue their voter outreach efforts. “That’s what we need to do in Clark County. … When we do that, we win. And when our voter turnout is low, we don’t win.”He spoke to a crowd of about 45 supporters who had gathered in a Republican call center in Hazel Dell. McKenna, who is traveling in an RV for eight days straight, also planned to make stops Tuesday in the cities of Carson, Goldendale and Yakima.In front of the Vancouver crowd, McKenna highlighted the importance of education reform in Washington state.“We need to put a new team on the field in Olympia,” he said. “Education reform has been blocked again and again and again by the governor, who says: ‘Hey, the teachers union hasn’t approved it. I’ll veto it.’ That’s not acceptable.”McKenna also threw his support behind several Southwest Washington candidates, including U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas, and state Sen. Don Benton, R-Vancouver. Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna addresses a rally Tuesday morning in Vancouver.last_img
