New ad in governor’s race attacks Republican Bill Bryant on Trump
Washington’s Democratic Party debuted its first advertisement in the race for governor on Thursday, one that blasts Republican candidate Bill Bryant for not saying whether he supports presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Incumbent Democrat Jay Inslee is facing Bryant in the election.
Bryant, a former Port of Seattle commissioner, has been peppered by media in the state about Trump but has yet to publicly announce if he favors the businessman over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The ad features clips of Trump soundbites, such as one about his onetime proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States that would last until “our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on,” along with snippets of Bryant deflecting questions from reporters about Trump.
