Bill Bryant faces major obstacles in bid to replace Washington Gov. Jay Inslee

The differences and disparities in the race between incumbent Gov. Jay Inslee and chief Republican challenger Bill Bryant were crystal clear over a 24-hour period on the last weekend of June, when each held a major campaign event at a convention center in Western Washington.
