King County Council member Bob Ferguson has sent an e-mail out last night to announce his bid to be the next Attorney General of Washington State. His plans have not really been so secret and neither are the plans of the current Attorney General Republican Rob McKenna's preparation and desire to be Washington State's next Governor.
Bob Ferguson intends to officially announce his campaign to run for Attorney General later today- February 14th, 2011. The election is not until next year but next year will be a busy year, what with President Obama being on the ballot and Senator Maria Cantwell here in Washington State, along with a total of 10 Congressional seats and all the State races from Governor on down and the Legislative races.
So it is a wise decision to get an early start for a statewide race. Bob Ferguson has campaigned hard in his previous races, taking on an incumbent in his 1st race for King County Council and then with the downsizing of the Council, being forced to run against another incumbent to retain his seat.
Bob Ferguson has put up a website at http://www.electbobferguson.com/. He also has a video up on his website as part of his kickoff.
He also has a facebook page up at Bob Ferguson for Attorney General.
