Gov debate: Inslee to McKenna

Inslee: As King County Council president, the council passed a budget that was out of balance in King County, why should voters trust you as governor?

McKenna: I opposed a new tax increase, the council passed it. In my opinion, it was the wrong thing to do. They passed the budget they wanted.

Inslee: Leadership is hard. Given the opportunity to build consensus, my opponet didn't succeed.
