Bob likes Cousin Vinnie's New York pizza.

Vinnie Vela, proprietor, likes state attorney general candidate Bob Ferguson. Ferguson visited Friday Harbor Sunday, June 3, the final stop on a 39-county campaign tour in Washington.

Who knows which "like" came first, but in the tradition of New York street politics, Ferguson, who went to law school in New York City, figured he had to stop, eat a piece of Vinnie's pizza, then ask for his vote — in that order.

So Ferguson stopped, noshed and schmoozed. And got the nod from Vinnie.
