How to Win Friends and (Not) Influence People

August 16, 2012

Here's a way to avoid making an impact in a race: Endorse both general election candidates.

The Seattle Times reports that, after first throwing their support to Washington's GOP gubernatorial nominee Rob McKenna, the Aerospace Futures Alliance will apparently also endorse his Democratic opponent Jay Inslee:

After some behind-the-scenes blowback over its endorsement of Republican Rob McKenna in the governor's race, an influential aerospace group decided Wednesday to also endorse Democrat Jay Inslee.

The Aerospace Futures Alliance board met with Inslee for more than an hour Wednesday to discuss his record on aerospace issues and his plans as governor. The group decided to endorse him, and a formal announcement will be made Thursday, according to Sterling Clifford, Inslee's communications director.

The move effectively neutralizes the group's earlier, sole endorsement of McKenna.
