The Seattle Post-Intelligencer broke the story on their blog yesterday afternoon that Dino Rossi would announce this Thursday that he will run again for Governor in the 2008 general election. I realize there isn’t a whole lot of drama about this since speculation he would run has been a regular feature of the political blogs since the day he conceded the 2004 election more than three years ago.
Still, there’s nothing like a old formal announcement to officially kick off the highly anticipated rematch with Governor Christine Gregoire. This morning’s Seattle Times indicates he will hold two functions on Thursday — one in Issaquah in the morning and one in Spokane in the afternoon. No word yet about when the Governor will make her candidacy “official.”
