Dino Rossi has scheduled a press conference for Thursday afternoon in Spokane to announce he's running for governor next year, a Rossi '08 page on the Internet says.
The listing is posted on Facebook, and Rossi can't be immediately reached for comment. But the Spokane Double Tree confirmed that it has a Rossi press conference scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
Jill Strait, a campaign spokeswoman, would only say "He's making an announcement. We'll have to wait until Thursday to see what that announcement is."
Isn't it rare for someone from the West Side to come to the East Side and hold a press conference to say he's NOT running for election? she was asked.
