Gov. Bill Ritter, D-Colo., challenged Gov. Deval Patrick, D-Mass., to an arm wrestling match over creating a new generation of jobs in their state this morning at a gathering of business, environmental and labor leaders in Washington. The meeting, called the Apollo Summit, was convened by nearly 200 community leaders to create a strategy to promote clean energy solutions that create good jobs in America.
