Eye On Olympia

The fat lady sang…

"P.S.: Dino is NOT running for King County Executive."

-- the closing line on the final email as the Dino Rossi campaign folded its tent this week. Rossi decided not to continue the legal fight to oust Gov. Christine Gregoire, saying that the "political makeup" of the court made it impossible to win there after the defeat in Wenatchee.
Rossi hasn't said what he'll do now, although there's speculation that he might challenge Sen. Maria Cantwell. There had also been talk that he'd take on King County Executive Ron Sims, whose election department was vilified for its errors during the court fight.
