A Billionaire Real Estate Mogul Can’t Find Love in Hillaryland

 

Kemper Freeman runs what he claims is the most-visited retail destination in the Pacific Northwest, lucrative enough to make him a billionaire. What it hasn’t done is make him particularly popular in the Seattle area.

The 75-year-old Freeman has vigorously opposed a $54 billion light-rail project, pitting himself against environmentalists, local government and even a business group his father established back in the ’70s. He’s also a Republican and a Donald Trump donor. None of this goes over well in a county that overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton.

“He’s kind of a lightning rod with some groups,” observed John Stokes, mayor of Bellevue, where Freeman’s real estate sits. “You say Kemper is for it and then they’re against it, and then you have people where if Kemper’s for it, then they are, too.”
