Dino Rossi for Goveneror of Washington State!

He, he, he…..

This ought to get Daniel’s blood going!

With the Democratic moves coming up in the state ……

Republican Dino Rossi could stay home and have his cake……

I’m betting that what he does…..

Sorry Daniel…..

I never thought he was going to Washington anyways….

How about a Governor for a Senator trade?

From Chris Cillizza’s ‘The Fix’……

What Will Dino Rossi Do?

The reports that Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire (D) may be on the short-list for Solicitor General to replace Supreme Court nomineeElena Kagan raises all kinds of possibilities for who might replace her if she gets the nod.

The most interesting potential scenario: Could former state Sen. Dino Rossi (R) be in the running?

Rossi — who lost to Gregoire in 2004 in the closest gubernatorial race in U.S. history and failed in a 2008 rematch — has been slow-walking a Senate challenge against Sen. Patty Murray (D). Most observers believe it’s a matter of when, not if, Rossi will run for that office.

National Democrats have been pushing out negative information on Rossi in recent weeks in an attempt to discourage him from running or damage him if he does. Republicans argue Democrats’ aggressiveness against Rossi is evidence of how worried they are about facing him this fall.

  1. The WA GOP has a better Candidate to run should there be a Special Election for Governor: State Attorney General Rob McKenna (R-WA).

  2. To “The Dog”:

    You can put that Dino Rossi for Governor Speculation to bed.

    Rossi is on the cusp of announcing his Senate Challenge to Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) according to Politico.

    Politico seems to be pretty reliable on these things. They broke the Story that Thompson was unlikely to run.

    • No, he won’t run for Governor:

      1. Chris Gregoire won’t be picked as Solicitor General

      2. McKenna is the stronger Candidate and is gunning for Governor.

      • McKenna will LOSE in 2012 bet on it to Lieutenant Governor Brad Owen (D), who will serve out Gregoire’s term as governor if she’s picked as Solicitor General this year.

  6. Also,

    Your friend Cilzza said that and I quote:

    “it is a matter of when-not of- he announces his run for Senate.”

    Take that.

  13. BUT james thinks he knows everything predicting Rossi would run for Governor despite two losing Campaign. The WA GOP will never ever turn to Rossi again asking him to run for Governor.

  15. James B, Rossi is FINISHED the Washington State GOP does NOT want a three-time loser on the statewide ballot where Obama is likely carrying the state again in 2 years, which will help Democrats keep the Executive Mansion for the 8th consecutive gubernatorial election in a row.
