Daniel…..Washington Senate: The NRSC is getting their Top-Recruit; Former State Senator Dino Rossi (R-WA) to challenge Incumbent Senator Patty Murray (D-WA)

Hello Folks!

Multiple Sources like CNN, MSNBC, “The Fix”, POLITICO as well as Local News Outlets in the Evergreen State confirming that former State Senator and two-time Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Dino Rossi (R-WA) WILL INDEED challenge 3-Term Incumbent Senator Patricia Lynn “Patty” Murray (D-WA)

His Spokesperson confirms that he’ll have a Mid-Week Announcement likely on Wednesday:



My fellow Republicans: This is a BIG GET for us as it puts likely the Democratic Senate Majority in play.

Daniel…..Washington Senate: Markxist Daily Kos Poll puts Murray ahead over Rossi by 11 and Reichert by 8……

Hello Dog!

The ULTRA LEFTISTS from Daily Kos partnering with Research 2000 released a new Poll last Night showing Incumbent Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) leading Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA) by 8 and ’04 & ’08 Gubernatorial Nominee Dino Rossi (R-WA) by 11 Points. I don’t believe it. Murray maybe up a bit but not by 11 in this Climate.

Meanwhile Dino Rossi (R-WA) has made pretty loud noises this week that he is seriously weighing a run against Murray. Hotline On Call reported this yesterday. Rossi also spoke with RNC Chairman Michael Steele (R-MD) and NRSC Chairman John Cornyn (R-TX) this week.

Research 2000 / Daily Kos Survey

Washington Senate 2010

General Election

Incumbent Senator Patty Murray (D)  51 %
U. S. Rep. Dave Reichert (R)  43 %
Undecided  6 %

Incumbent Senator Patty Murray (D)  52 %

’04/’08 Governor Candidate Dino Rossi (R)  41 %
Undecided  7 %

Incumbent Senator Patty Murray (D)  54 %
State Senator Tom Benton (R)  35 %
Undecided  11 %

Note: KOS also polled Republican Paul Akers (R-WA) who would be the weakest Candidate but he’ll not run.

I don’t believe this Poll. BTW I also don’t believe the RAS Poll which had Rossi up 2 at the beginning of the month. Considering that Silver says R2000 is screwing around 4.5 Percentage Points to the left the Results are likely somewhat in between Murray up 11 (DKOS) and Rossi up 2 (RAS). I think Murray is up 5 or so right now. The Campaign in this State hasn’t even begun so Rossi would certainly make this Race a competitive one should he pull the trigger.
