King County cops backing Rossi

The King County Police Guild dropped a line to Dino Rossi recently, telling the GOP governor’s candidate he’s got their support in his grudge rematch with Gov. Chris Gregoire.

The letter did not come with a check, although no one should be surprised if the guild’s support isn’t worth some coin later.

A couple of notable observations: the King County Police Guild didn’t back either Rossi or Gregoire in ‘04; they threw pre-primary support to Democrat Ron Simms, then sat out the general.

In her former job, Gregoire was once the state’s top law enforcement officer, as the attorney general.

This year the guild proclaims itself impressed with Rossi’s views on public safety and its pension issues.
