FILE -- In this March 26, 2013 file photo, Republican state Sen. Doug Ericksen, left, and Democratic state Sen. Kevin Ranker listen to testimony from a climate change skeptic at a hearing in Olympia, Wash.

Jay Inslee pass ambitious climate change legislation. The Washington Conservation Voters Action Fund has given about $345,000 to a newly formed group that has started running negative ads to unseat Ericksen, who has been a vocal critic of some Inslee ideas to curb carbon pollution.
