Rossi “Prefers Republican Party”

Dino Rossi is a Republican.

That’s no surprise to anyone in Washington not living under a rock, but there was a question whether this year’s ballot would feature Rossi as a “Republican” or “GOP” candidate for U.S. Senate.

He filed today to be listed on the ballot as “Prefers Republican Party.” This year, that label isn’t perceived as negatively as it was two years ago when he chose “Prefers GOP Party” instead.

It also could reduce the chances that the state Democratic Party will sue to make candidates give their parties’ real names.

The other major Republicans in the race, Paul Akers and Clint Didier, have both announced they will file today.

A couple more newcomers to the race also filed. Charles Allen of Seattle and Bob Burr of Bellingham are both Democrats.

  1. G.O.P. is WAY better.

    Man this guy is one cynical, hypocritical piece of you know what. He’ll do anything, say anything to try to get elected. He’ll change his positions. He’ll say one thing and do another. He’ll run as GOP when he thinks that being a republican is bad. He’ll run as republican when he thinks it will benefit him. If Washington residents are stupid enough to let this guy represent the state, we deserve whatever ill befalls us.

  3. I would not vote for him if he was running against Patty “Stinky Shoes” Murry, oh wait he is. Still will not vote for him. The Dem’s and Repub’s are one in the same.

    Both Patty and Dino are part of the same club, and we are not invited.
