Presidential hopeful Jay Inslee tells Walnut Creek crowd why climate change is his top priority


For Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, the environment isn’t just a concern, it’s the reason he’s running for president.

The 68-year-old Inslee told a crowd of about 400 Rossmoor Democrats Tuesday afternoon that he wasn’t looking to get in the race until he saw that none of the other candidates was making the nation’s environmental concerns a priority.
