Most of the candidates running for governor, including Democrat Jay Inslee, said they'd be at the SECB's endorsement meeting later this afternoon. But Attorney General Rob McKenna, who is running for governor as a Republican, didn't confirm whether he'd show up. McKenna's schedulers didn't say he wasn't coming, but they didn't say he was coming, either.

Clearly, McKenna is just one meeting away from winning the SECB's endorsement and Goldy's love. We're sittin' on pins and needles over here.
