Spokane County Deputy Prosecutor Dave Stevens said early this afternoon that he has officially informed his boss, Prosecutor Steve Tucker, that he is running against him in the August primary.
The meeting, which started about 10:30 a.m., lasted a minute and a half or less, Stevens said.
Stevens said he told Tucker that he was running for prosecutor and Tucker responded: "We're reading the union contract and considering our options."
Stevens, who brought two union representatives to the meeting, said he wouldn't speculate on what Tucker will do.
"I'm going to keep working as hard as I've always been working," he said.
