In a ranking of the best states for business that it published this morning, Forbes.com gushed about Washington.
The governor got in a quote, sent out a press release and cc'd her re-election campaign.
From the intro:
In Forbes.com's second annual Top States for Business, Virginia may be the top-ranked state for the second straight year, but Washington is the big story. The biggest mover (tied with Tennessee), rising from 12th to fifth place, Washington is also the only state to finish in the top five in three main categories (labor, regulatory environment and growth). And Washington's numbers are up across the board when you look both backward and at projections into the future.
