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. In downtown Seattle on the evening of June 24, streets were blocked, parking was challenging and traffic was worse than usual, as some 3,000 people made their way to a fundraising dinner that featured President Barack Obama and Inslee. Their images were projected on giant monitors for well-dressed donors at tables far enough from the stage to be almost in the next ZIP code.
