Stem-cell ads in governor’s race

Topic moot

Thank you for your editorial chastising the Gregoire campaign for trying to make embryonic stem-cell research the “core” issue of this campaign [“Stick to the election, get past stem cells,” editorial, Sept. 23].

To reiterate, there are no state programs involving embryonic stem-cell research. Gov. Christine Gregoire has proposed no programs involving embryonic stem-cell research.

Therefore, this is a nonissue in the current gubernatorial campaign and a red herring to distract voters from the fact that the governor has no real accomplishment upon which to campaign.

— Mark Ursino, Sammamish
