Invitation from Washington State Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski to potential independent presidential candidate Howard Schultz:

“Howard, I still haven’t heard from you about your possible independent presidential bid, so I’d like to offer to meet you before your January 31st book tour appearance in Seattle. I’d love to share how we’ve rebuilt the Democratic Party in Washington State from the ground up over the last two years, and why it’s important for lifelong Democrats to work together to regain the White House. Coffee date? I’ll buy!”
