We are now hearing from Congressman Jay Inslee, who represents the 1st Congressional District and is exciting the audience with his message of hope.

"The days of Republican fear are over," Inslee declared. "The days of Democratic hope are here." He added, to huge cheers, "We are never going to allow the power of fear to overcome the promise of liberty."

"We are going to make history in 12 days, you and I."

Inslee touted Initiative 937 and urged the audience to tell their neighbors to vote YES for renewable energy and clean future. He talked about the Apollo Energy proposal and There has been an iron triangle that we need to break - the triangle of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and the oil companies."

Inslee also quipped, "We can't wait nineteen years for Dave Reichert to figure out global warming" and reminded the crowd that "we are the optimists."
