Republican Dino Rossi, a former Washington State Senator who ran in 2004 and 2008 for governor, officially announced today that he wants to challenge Senator Patty Murray (D-WA).
The Republican primary is August 17. The Washington Post looks at his competition:
Former NFL player Clint Didier (R) — who has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (R) — businessman Paul Akers (R) and state Sen. Don Benton (R) are also competing for the GOP nod. All three have previously said they will stay in the race regardless of Rossi’s decision.
