Jay Inslee, the Democratic governor of Washington, made stops in Bedford, Exeter and Durham Saturday.

The visit was Inslee's first to New Hampshire since he launched his 2020 campaign earlier this month.

His platform centers primarily on addressing climate change, an issue he stressed with voters at a house party Saturday morning.

“We have exactly one chance left to defeat climate change, and that’s during the next administration,” Inslee said. “When (we) have one chance at survival, we ought to take it.”

He said stronger environmental policies will encourage private investment, growing the renewable energy industry and creating jobs across the country.
