Former Pierce County Executive John Ladenburg says he's made up his mind on what state office he wants to seek in 2012 and it's...
State Supreme Court justice.
Not state attorney general.
Ladenburg's campaign operation sent out word that he is shutting down his "exploratory committee" for AG, and starting up a campaign committee for the high court. One reason, he says, is that hundreds of lawyers around the state have urged him to run for the court "because of my broad experience in law." Ladenburg was Pierce County prosecutor before he was county executive.
