Jay Inslee ended his presidential campaign on August 21, 2019.

In his own words: “I am running for President of the United States because our country must embark on an all out national effort to defeat climate change. In doing so we can simultaneously create millions of good-paying jobs building our American clean energy economy. But meeting this challenge requires a national mobilization that must be led by the White House, and I am the only candidate for president who has declared unequivocally that this must be the highest priority for the next administration.

Furthermore, as grandparents, Trudi and I know that this is the most important work that we can do for our three grandchildren, and for grandchildren across our country – to devote ourselves to ensuring that their lives and their futures are not degraded by a world racked by unabated climate change.
