A new poll shows Democrat Jay Inslee with a lead over Republican Rob McKenna in the gubernatorial race as the two prepare for a televised debate Tuesday night in Yakima.
The KING 5 poll, conducted by Survey USA, found 48 percent of those surveyed support Inslee, compared with 42 percent for McKenna. The statewide poll of 540 likely voters has a margin of error of 4.3 percent.
Inslee and McKenna will face off tonight at the Yakima Convention Center at 7 p.m. in a debate sponsored by the Yakima Herald-Republic, the Association of Washington State Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, KCTS 9 and KYVE.
The debate will be shown live on KCTS9 and streamed on KCTS9.org.
