Washington Senate Election 2010: Patty Murray (D) Trails Dino Rossi (R) 46% to 48% … Will Rossi Run is the Question


Is it possible that Democrats could lose the Senate seat in Washington State too? In the most recent Rasmussen poll, incumbent Patty Murray trails Republican challenger Dino Rossi by 2% points, 46% to 48%.

However, so far Rossi claims that he is not interested in running. With all of the action going on in the Senate and the potential Republican take over, it would be a shame if Rossi do not compete. If he does not, Murray has a double digit lead over the rest of the other GOP challengers and will certainly retain the seat.

The potential vulnerability is highlighted when Murray is matched against Dino Rossi, the unsuccessful GOP candidate in the state’s last two gubernatorial contests. Certainly the best-known of the Republicans, Rossi attracts 48% of the vote in a match-up with Murray while the incumbent earns 46%. One percent (1%) like another candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

But Rossi, despite encouragement from many Republicans, says so far that he’s not interested in running for the Senate.

      I hope he decides to run…

      Hopefully Pelosi will not be reappointed this year…She is not a Speaker of the House but instead the big mouth of the house…

      Is Rossi going to run?
      If not, will he help or support Akers bid?
      Time is really important here.
