Gov. Jay Inslee will get a chance to pitch his presidential campaign to a national audience next week in one of five candidate town hall meetings to be broadcast live by CNN.

The Inslee town hall will be next Wednesday, airing at 7 p.m. Pacific time, with Wolf Blitzer as the moderator. CNN will also have a session with U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand at the same time Tuesday, and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro next Thursday.

Spiritual book author Marianne Williamson and businessman Andrew Yang will be in back-to-back sessions on April 14 starting at 7 p.m. Pacific.

Inslee announced his run for president, focusing on the fight against climate change, on March 1. He’s one of 15 candidates who have formally announced their campaigns for the Democratic nomination. Several others are considering runs.
