WA Gov. Jay Inslee Launches 2020 Presidential Bid

Washington state Gov.

Jay Inslee  announced Friday that he's throwing his hat into the ring for the 2020 presidential race.  In  a new campaign video , the Democrat said he'd make combating climate change a national priority.  It's a topic  he's championed during his two terms as governor, enacting a Clean Energy Fund and passing green transportation infrastructure investment legislation.  Inslee's joining an already-crowded diverse pool of candidates looking to secure the Democratic presidential nomination, including  Sens.

Cory Booker ,  Elizabeth Warren  and  Bernie Sanders .  Inslee's campaign headquarters will be located in Seattle, which is so far the only 2020 bid based out of the West Coast.  An adviser told CNN that Inslee will kick off the presidential run announcement with trips to Iowa and Nevada in the coming days.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
