Dino Rossi comes to the Gorge to speak at the Grand Old Picnic.
Rossi is in another tight race to unseat the current Washington governor. He returns to the picnic on Sunday, Sept. 14, at the Thomas picnic grounds in Underwood.
Voters throughout the Gorge are invited to this election year event to hear stump speakers appeal for votes. This year's speakers include Rossi, U.S. Congressman Greg Walden, Oregon Senator Ted Ferrioli, Washington Senator Jim Honeyford, Washington Representatives Bruce Chandler and Dan Newhouse, and several more.
This event is provided by the Skamania and Klickitat County Republicans to give voters an opportunity to meet and visit with area candidates.
The picnic will be at 1 p.m. at the Cam and Barbara Thomas picnic grounds in Underwood. Take State Route 14 to Underwood, turn on Cook-Underwood Road, and follow signs.
