July 22, 2008 · Updated 9:39 AM
As her campaign ramps up, Gov. Christine Gregoire will take to the water this week as part of a boat tour set to land Friday on Bainbridge.
The Democratic governor, who will face Republican Dino Rossi in the November election, is scheduled to arrive at the Waterfront Park dock at noon.
The 30-minute stop will include a speech and a brief meet and greet with campaign supporters.
The goal of the tour is to highlight Gregoire’s efforts to fight pollution in Puget Sound, said campaign spokesman Aaron Toso.
The tour will make seven stops in all.
It begins Thursday in Tacoma. From there Gregoire will head north to Des Moines and Edmonds.
On Friday, after leaving Bainbridge, the governor is scheduled to stop in Bremerton.
Rossi visited the island in May to speak at a Bainbridge Island Republican Women luncheon.
