Rossi in the House…

The Republican who would be governor — Dino Rossi — turned up in the wings of the state House of Representatives Monday. He went behind closed doors to meet with House Republicans. The message: that despite Friday’s court ruling that a re-vote is probably not an option until at least November, he’s keeping up the fight.

“I feel good,” he said.

Rossi said afterward that he’s optimistic about his chances to overturn the election, which Gov. Christine Gregoire was certified as winning by just 129 votes.

“We won in court,” he said. “We get to bring our evidence, we get to have a hearing.”

Republicans in the meeting said that Rossi predicted that the court fight in Wenatchee would be wrapped up by late March. Whatever happens there, an appeal to the Supreme Court is all but certain.
