VIDEO: From Olympia to West Seattle, Senator Nguyen’s chat with AG Ferguson

West Seattle’s C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor) has been the setting for countless conversations. This one had an audience, as 34th District State Sen. Joe Nguyen hosted State Attorney General Bob Ferguson on Saturday afternoon. Their half-hour chat was a fundraiser for the senator but it wasn’t a rally or pep talk – instead, he interviewed Ferguson, with many questions centered on the attorney general’s dozens of lawsuits against the Trump Administration, including what it was like to file the first one:

Taking on the White House landed Ferguson on TIME‘s 2017 most-influential list. He talked about that too.

They also discussed how the AG’s office interacts from the Legislature, and how there’s more bipartisan work in Olympia than you might think. (Both are Democrats.) We counted about 30 people in attendance:

Among those on hand: Sen. Nguyen’s mom, who prepared food for the occasion:

The senator joked that his mom’s cooking was probably a bigger draw than the chance to watch two elected officials chat.

    Love these two guys and proud to have them represent us. AG Ferguson is smart and ethical. And he’s kicking tRump tRaitor’s derriere! Sen. Nguyen is a relative newbie, but we’re already impressed.

      Oh that liberal darling AG of yours Bob Ferguson sure is carrying on state tradition by attacking Native American rights isn’t he. One of the first things he did was sue a mom and pop gas station in Yakima for back taxes on the gasoline they sell on the reservation. He figured they wouldn’t be able to fight back and then he could collect millions across the board from state tribes, a Trump appointed judge swung the decision by voting in favor of the Yakima tribe and their treaty rights. Last I heard your AG was still appealing the decision because it was so close. This story is just the beginning with him and Natives. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
