From wire reports

Anti-tax initiative promoter Tim Eyman rallied with dozens of supporters at the state Capitol campus Thursday in Olympia against the state’s COVID-19-related stay-home order.

He stood outside the governor’s mansion with a computer, saying he had officially entered his information into the Secretary of State’s website to run for governor as a Republican against Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee.

His protest occurred the same day that unionized University of Washington Medicine staff and labor organizers rallied at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle to call for better protections from the coronavirus and to protest planned furloughs and layoffs in the face of $500 million in losses during the pandemic.
