WA Dems: It’s Gregoire’s convention

There’s no doubt who this convention is designed to boost.

Sure, there are cardboard cutouts of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the grand hallway, and paraphernalia for candidates of all levels. But the Washington Democrats, like their Republican counterparts two weeks ago, are focusing on the governor’s race as they gather for their convention.

Want proof? Chris Gregoire’s signs out number every other candidate’s in the grand hall.

Her volunteers are walking around in white t-shirts with her name plastered across their chests.

Her smiling face adorns every identification tag, turning every delegate, alternate and guest into a walking campaign sign for Gregoire.

Even the Republicans didn’t think of that last one for their convention.

Gregoire and Sen. Patty Murray address the convention banquet tonight. Sen. Maria Cantwell addresses the convention Saturday morning and the Spokane County Democrats Salmon Feed in the evening.
