OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) – Washington Gov. Jay Inlsee will not seek a fourth term in office.
The 72-year-old Democrat made the announcement Monday. Inslee was first elected in 2012 and became only the second governer elected to three consecutive terms.
He made a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 on an environmental platform but gained little traction.
In a statement he touted what he described as accomplishments on climate policy, gun violence prevention and family leave benefits.
