Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell will make her only public 2012 campaign appearances on the Olympic Peninsula with stops in Port Angeles and Port Townsend on Tuesday.

The appearances are the fourth in a nine-day “Jobs for America” tour, with Cantwell appearing with other Democratic candidates who are running for office this year.

Cantwell, first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2000, is seeking a third term.

Her opponent is state Sen. Michael Baumgartner, R-Spokane.

Cantwell on Tuesday will be joined by state Sen. Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, who is running for the seat to be vacated by U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Belfair.

Cantwell and Kilmer will start the day in Port Angeles and later Port Townsend.

During their third appearance of the day in Bremerton, Cantwell will appear with Dicks, Kilmer, gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee and her senate colleague, Patty Murray, the Cantwell campaign said Friday.

Local times

The hourlong Port Angeles event will begin at 7:30 a.m. at Clallam County Democratic Headquarters, 124-A W. First St.

In Port Townsend, Cantwell is scheduled to appear at the Dream City Market and Café, 23 Kala Square Place, at 9:30 a.m.

There is no admission charge for either event, though campaign contributions will be solicited.

The Cantwell campaign is requesting that people who wish to attend respond through a link,

Campaign spokesman Scott Whittaker said the message of the tour is to demonstrate Cantwell’s commitment to the creation of new jobs.
