PASCO, Wash. (AP) - Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee and Republican challenger Bill Bryant are priming for their third debate.

The debate is Wednesday evening at Columbia Basin College in Pasco.

In earlier debates, Bryant has criticized Inslee, saying he had mismanaged state departments. He also contends Inslee has failed to come up with a plan to fund K-12 education, as mandated by the state Supreme Court.

Inslee countered that the state has invested billions in public education, that significant strides have been made to increase pay for teachers and increase access to kindergarten.

Inslee says he’s helped create 250,000 jobs.

Bryant is a former Seattle port commissioner.
